White Nights by RicardoGiraldez


Oil on canvas
"There is a budding morrow in midnight,/There is a triple sight in blindness keen" (To Homer, John Keats).
The legendary Homer is the symbolic figure of the ideal poet endowed with divine vision: blind to the banal everyday world, inspired only by the Muses.

luckylace222OH MY GREEK GOD.

Love the strong skin tones. It really makes this picture stand out! The robes have many different colors though, so it confuses the light source a little. However, everything else, ESPECIALLY his great blue yes, is great!

RicardoGiraldezThank you! I try to illuminate my paintings in the style of the Quattrocento and the Pre-Raphaelites, without abuse of chiaroscuro. I try to project a light that does not come entirely from this world.

RicardoGiraldezHey! Thanks for your kind words! Yes, I love the Italian Quattrocento but unfortunately I am of our time. I do not have any time machine except my imagination.
