May 05, 2021 – Lady in Paris 1889, My Newest #AcrylicPainting Upload @FineArtAmerica

I began Lady in Paris 1889 in July last year, nearly a year ago now, and am glad to say I reached a resolution of how I wanted it to look, or more to the point, how I wanted it to feel, and finally uploaded it to Fine Art America yesterday ♥️

Earlier this week I was finally able to capture a photo shot with enough soft light to give the painting justice.

But the longer term delay was simply really liking the initial layins from last year and just staring at it over the months. Slowly then, earlier this year, I began tentatively adding accents plus directional movements, struggling to maintain the soft yet intense blue I like so much in this.

I came close a month ago with the basic full image laid in, but still lacking all the accents I still felt and wanted, but wasn’t sure where and how to place.

Some of that was enhancing accents that I’d already sorta dabbed in, resulting in what’s shown in the high resolution previews I could pick out on Fine Art America.

The hair accents were particularly tricky for me, as I wanted them definitely stand out, yet not overshadow those at the top of the Eiffel Tower seen in the high res preview further below. I think what finally made the woman’s hair work for me, was the nearly accidental appearance via a brush stroke of eyelashes from her left eye, lol! When my wife notices them I knew I’d gotten one those wonderful “happy accidents” 😊

The challenge adding more accents to the upper observation tower (seen below) was I already liked what I had but knew I’d like it a lot more with just a teeny touch more. The impressionist-abstract rendition (see up close) worked really well for me at any distance ❤️

Nearly all the constant layering over the months, in dabs and streaks, thin and thick, worked to create a painting that, when viewed in differing degrees of light, reveals differing shades and intensities of colors.

Paris, the allure of the Eiffel Tower, and the appeal of the woman, revel in those shades 💕

The larger size than my recent-normal gives this work an easy viewing.

The square sizing constrains its directionality.

All this to say, I really like this one ☺️


Take care everyone!


ps – 1889, as in the title, is when the Eiffel Tower 1st showcased itself! 🇫🇷

  2. Loved the painting Felipe, makes me think of that time right before the sun slips its first glacé over the city of lights, that blue period of the day…but did you really start it in the 1800’s?
