Queen of Diamonds by agnes-cecile Queen of Diamonds by agnes-cecile


WATCH THE SPED UP VIDEO ON YOUTUBE: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VHArN…



This is my participation to the most colorful deck of cards by Playing Arts Project.
We decided to let me make the Queen of Diamonds, so I thought to a diamond near to me, a faceted diamond created by geometric games. It's a rough diamond, as the young queen that I decide to create. dressed as a queen through the jewelry, but under this crown there is stilla child.

(a little interview about the card along the post: playingarts.com/news/ )

As a card in the deck, it is one of the few that belong. It appears to designed to be in the deck as opposed to chosen to be added to the deck. The diamond motif suits (no pun intended) the painting well. Were I expecting to see a queen I would absolutely expect to see some kind of gem. So at least in my mind, queens and geometry go hand in hand. This was executed well.

As for the quality of the painting it could have been better. It seems to be put together somewhat harshly and I would like to have seen softer edges to better depict the child. Places where shadow should be but were untouched by the brush and left white stand out to me. So the edges are somewhat crude but the concept and execution is beautiful.
What do you think?

:iconathen-ectra:
This picture is very unique and high quality. It has a lot of symbolisms in it. It is very easy and clear to see. The eyes are showing that under pressure to stay calm even if it shows the break down. It is very original and the whiteness symbolizes innocence and purity. The colors make each other stand out and blend nicely. The chains that hold the diamond in place also shows the restraint of the picture. The diamond in the background kind of takes away from the picture. It stands out and takes your attention away from the true picture.

I watched the video to find out one thing: were the diamond and chain real or painted. The answer: painted! Amazing!

I'm glad I watched the video because I saw a few interesting techniques AND the amazing confidence of the artist! It was interesting to see that her materials hardly moved at all during the whole process.

Beautiful painting!

This creeps me out in the best way possible... whereas in your other piece, "tiny creature," the girl seems to be staring straight at me, the queen of diamond seems more... unfocused. And the color palette gives her an eerie look, as though her mind is blank... I love this so much!

this is one of my favorites that you've done. i love it when you incorporate geometric shapes to your softer, flowing shapes. it really works together well!

Ms. Cecile your art is just beautiful and I was hoping that I could have your permission to take screen shots of your video speedpaints for my highschool project (of course I will take no credit for your paintings It's really a simple formatting assignment)
