The Lady of Magnolia completes the series of three ladies of flowers: Pomegranate flower, Jasmine flower and Magnolia flower. Each of them has its own character, which occurs and corresponds to the nature of the flower. The beautiful flowering magnolia tree amazed me with its sheer beauty this summer during my French vacation. Therefore, the character of this Lady arose in me as a poetic allegory of this flower. So, from the medieval ballads and associations came the Lady of Magnolia.
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 Magnolia 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.
