Four Seasons- Spring by Lamorien Four Seasons- Spring by Lamorien
Hellooooooo my friends! I haven't put art up in foreverrr. So, I've been working on this one for a good solid month now, but it's finally finished!!! This will be showing in my senior portfolio one way or another. Colored pencil and ink on cut out paper. Hope you like it, comments/critique appreciated. :)

It occurs to me that I may need to get a better photograph at some point...

I used the BEAUTIFUL stock photo here: [link]

I got a scan of it finally, hopefully this fixes the color issues.

Excellent work! Mucha too is my favourite artist and this reminiscent of his work.

Hello! I'm making a series of art videos about flowers, and I was wondering if I could include this piece in one of my videos. It would be set to an original classical-style composition (by me) about this flower. I'll be sure to credit you and link to your page if you say yes. Here's a link to see the kind of music it is: [link]

wow, your music is just lovely! Yes, I'd be happy to let you use this in a video, just credit/link back to my deviantArt page. If it's not too much, could you include my name, Michelle Hunt, and maybe my facebook page?? MLH Illustration and Fine Art. Thanks for stopping by!

I love this! Your gallery really resonates with me, since I started in pencil and gravitated towards art nouveau too (though I'm not an art student!). Really beautiful work, all around. I look forward to seeing more.

The swirling abstract cutouts contrast quite nicely with the geometric twigs. I wish the twigs were a little more emphasized- they almost blend in- but that's the ethereal beauty of it. :)

thank you so much! I may go back and emphasize the background a bit more, it sort of depends on how the others in the series turn out. Thanks for the suggestion!!

This has probably got to be my favorite thing you've ever done. I've always loved nouveau to begin with, but you bring your own style into it with the cut out. Great angle shot and I love the unity in this peace. I can't wait to here what you get on your AP test! :D

Thank you so much! unfortunately dA was pretty cruel to the contrast and color, so I'll probably scan it eventually. I'm looking forward to doing my portfolio review, I'm hoping to have 3 more of these done (one for each season) by the time I graduate. :)

How many of your 24 have you done? Is your concentration this nouveau theme? (if so, how are you showing progression? In skill, season, etc.)

:iconlamorien:
Lamorien Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I've only got the one large one done. I have a couple smaller ones done as well and will hopefully have enough for a show. My theme overall is beings of light (i.e. elves, nymphs, angels) and for the seasons one specifically, I'm going to use color, flowers, and textures to show progression through the seasons. Hopefully my paper cutting skills will get progress through the process as well. :)
