Layers of time. Forms in space.
BEAUTIFUL Julie. 💜💜 Seasons Greetings. 🍾🥂👍
Seasons Greetings to you too, Tina. I hope 2018 finds you very well.
Absolutely amazing! I’m looking at your beautiful painting on New Years Eve and what a great way to look forward to the new year! I am inspired by your vision, thank you Julie and Happy New Year to you and your family and friends ,
Happy New Year to you, Nick, and thank you for such generous comments. I am honoured that you feel inspired by my vision.
I love the layers of focus, they add such depth. The wonderful directional lines leading to the rose within the levels of detail are just masterful! What a good way to end the year! Looking forward to another year of beautiful Julie Podstolski art!
Thanks Sherry and Happy New Year to you. I was initially nervous about this composition (ie the uncropped source photo). I had to ask Matthew if he thought it worked. I got the thumbs up so I set to work. Now that it is complete, I’m so happy I listened to Matt.
A very nice companion piece to your poppy. There is a lot of strength in a single flower, especially against an urban background, which despite the soft focus is still clearly identifiable as Paris. The body of work is growing for the next exhibition!
Thanks Anna. You’ll know by now that sometimes I go back to the same source photo that I have used for a work in the past. I noted in the Brisbane exhibition that Gerhard Richter also does this. If he thinks he has more to say and can say it in a quite different way, he will return to a previously-used source.
I first used the source photo in 2012. I wanted to have another go, this time using oil pastels as well. The result is much stronger and more vibrant than the 2012 version – plus I used the source photo uncropped this time as I wanted it to be as much about the view/structure of the forms as about the flower. (And I never got to exhibit the 2012 drawing as it was a private sale.)
I loved working on this five years after the first one. I think I may never draw a picture with 100% coloured pencils again.
Absolutely beautiful as ever, Julie. Looking forward to seeing more of your spectacular work in the new year.
Hello Joy, Happy New Year. Indeed, another year and another body of work – for you and me – and so many of us who do art.
Dear Julie , what an exquisite drawing of a rose ; I know how hard they are to depict.
Wishing you and Matt a fulfilling and healthy 2018 .
Love from Judy .
Happy New Year to you too, Judy. See you later on in January.
Julie , I finally got it —– the rose is a real one . silly me !
Hmmm, now I’m confused. The rose is the ‘star’ of the drawing – it IS part of the drawing, as opposed to a rose placed in front of a drawing. Judy, is that what you mean?
this is making my mouth water. It’s beauty is palpable.
Ha ha – time for a rose made of clay then.
