March artastic




Hi there ...well...firstly...lost bowls today, so out of the comp...gives me time to do other things now...lol...like cleaning....yuk!!!!and creating, which is what i love to do...




For now i will show you my entry for the march artastic challenge...




Mucha was the creator/originator of ART Nouveau (French for new art style)Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful healthy young women in flowing vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed haloes behind the women's heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used paler pastel colors.I recommend you all look up his Art Nouveau work to get a feel for his style (Google).
