Service Description

PAINTED LADIES SERIES A beautiful series featuring and painting women - we've been building up to this. May is a gentle green-blue lady, and the lady with the lamp. I've chosen ladies in different figural positions to get a comprehensive view, and the variety of activities they were engaged in, including having fun on swings, combing their long and beautiful hair, thinking and gazing, running from the monsoon, sniffing flowers, waiting for lovers and scattering fireworks. There are actual portraits of known ladies (princesses such as Nur Jahan and Jahanara) including the famous turquoise lady. I'm really excited about this series as a counterpart to the heavily male faces of last year, and we bring it to a balanced close with a couple in love as a prelude to the Love series next year (love in all its forms). June's lady is having fun (yes, it wasn't all doom and gloom for women in the past, they found ways to enjoy themselves!). A swing for summer, and it reminds me of Fragonard's famous lady on a swing. And - summer monsoon clouds. Summer is also a time of long and bright nights, in which you can indulge in a variety of activities, including combing your hair and waiting for your lover (presumably) - or just combing it for yourself and thinking, gazing in the distance. This is a beautiful summer night sky. We are also bringing in different figural positions and poses to gently start learning about figures too. Upcoming sessions include: JULY - The turquoise lady (and a different turquoise lady) AUGUST - Monsoon lady running from a storm (with lightning!) SEPTEMBER - Nur Jahan OCTOBER - Jahanara NOVEMBER - Lady at night, and a sitting nayika DECEMBER - Couple at night with fireworks, a precursor to the Love series next year More info on Forum: Forum link in main menu
