At the time, when I was painting a Jasmine flower, as an etude or even a botanical drawing, I read various stories and legends about this beautiful flower. Apparently, these poetic allegories brought to life the idea of a women's character corresponding to a flower. So, from the medieval ballads and associations came the Lady of the Jasmine Flower.
The combination of the classical method of painting and the modern stylised women's character gives the portrait additional visual meaning.
I prepared an imprimatur corresponding to the middle tone of the work and painted a portrait using the technique of the old masters in several layers.
Van Dyck colour came up very well for the background, whose dense neutral and deep tone very emphasises the character of the portrait. In the upper corner, on a canvas field in a circle, a jasmine flower vignette is painted, and on the Ladies dress there is a stylised ornament based on this flower.
The painting is painted with a brush in several layers, on varnish.
