This process of creating a fine art oil painting can take several weeks or even a month before it is accomplished. It begins with a careful study of color and the geometry of the composition and how that flow of color and light will illuminate, define and project the character, form and emotion of the figures in the scene.
The initial phases include making many small sketches to discover the harmonic patterns of color and geometry to be used as well as the flow of light and shadow. And then the image is sketched on the canvas and the painting process begins.
“Blending the colors and watching them take form in a sensuous woman resting in a room or sitting in a garden transports me into a realm of beauty and harmony,” explains Verlaine. “Layer upon layer of glazes and highlights add to the depth of color and luminosity, following the leadership of the great artists of the past.”
“My focus and intention is to share her passion with you. I desire to create a window of a beautiful scene that will transport you to another reality where you can experience the feeling of that time and place.” Click here to see more paintings.
