The Beauty of Art Nouveau

The Beauty of Art Nouveau – 11 x 14 inch acrylic portrait on stretched canvas

I know it has been a while since I have posted any new art, but I have been busy painting, and loving every minute of it! A few weeks ago, we were studying the art of Alphonse Mucha in our Let’s Face It class. I was excited about painting with his style in mind, because I had just seen his museum in Prague in March of this year. Seeing his amazing illustrative works, was a dream come true!

I am still enjoying this look into Art Nouveau, and how artists of that time period were very much into decorative arts. There certainly is a lot of flourish in Mucha’s work, as well as gorgeous models. I loved working on “The Beauty of Art Nouveau” and I am proud of myself for attempting to paint the circle free handed! 

This beauty is now available in my shop, ArtcyLucy on Etsy.
