Umeko by Margaret

Umeko

Acrylic on heavy paper.

She wears her pink kimono
decorated with green
in honour of her love
never blossomed to red
Pink is her colour
mild, the safer side of wild.
Pink is romantic and disarming
of all colours compiled.....

Tried to be looser with the brush..well made the background:) Just had to add a touch of bling :))

Artist Statement
for Margaret
MargaretNew Zealander,adopted by Australia. Never realised I had any creativity until I swapped Latin for art. My great art school teacher encouraged me to try for Fine arts diploma and attend university. A blink later I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer. Thought you just sketched frocks not have to draft patterns etc!!Both my father and teacher all but disowned me when I and decided painting faces (makeup) was my thing. Makeup is a form of art I think.

Can't really remember anything I learnt formally. So I am basically self teaching my way along.I probably get caught up in too much detail as I paint with canvas board on my lap watching TV,playing music and eating chocolates!

My greatest influences were Pietro Annigoni.His charcoal...

I didn't find this one easy to paint but feel my reference material let me down as I didn't have enough detail to understand full and it was probably a mistake...
Animals are difficult and i is important to have sufficient reference shots to give the correct physical characteristics. I think you did a great job on them... view answer
