Inspiration..Francoise de Felice

I cam across this artist’s paintings when looking for portrait examples for my classes on Pinterest. I really fell for her rich colours and multi layered images.

Francoise de Felice was born in Paris and lived there until she was 20. Her move from France to Sicily prompted her to move away from Impressionism too. She developed her own way of working, focussing on narrative and layers.She returned to France and continued to paint dream like portraits.I just love the light and shade in them. The contrast between loose brushstrokes and neat detailed faces are really lovely. I obviously use blending techniques in my own paintings so it is a joy to see it done so well.
