Practising of painting human beings continues. Lately I have become interested in art nouveau-style (and naturally the works of Alphonse Mucha), so I wanted to bring some of those elements in this one, like the flowers and ornament patterns.
Obviously I inspired also by current feelings and nature outside. I wanted to paint a songbird as well and I chose a chaffinch, because I associate its singing to this season. And some kind of forest spirit is the mythological part of the work. As mentioned above, I'm still practising human beings and there are anatomical mistakes, but otherwise I'm quite a satisfied with the work. After all this is first painting after a break of three months (I haven't had much inspiration after the big exhibition / thesis-project).
