The idea for this artwork was to play around with different techniques, allowing myself to freely sketch, to create layers, textures while using a very limited colour palette.
I wanted to create an artwork simple in its form yet layered with intricate details and spontaneous squiggles that hint at complexity beneath simplicity.
I used Sophia Loren's vintage photo as inspiration for creating this artwork. Sketching on an iPad felt like cheating at first, as I'm a painter - I usually work in my art studio, standing in front of the canvas and getting all messy with paint and brushes. But at the time I was drawing this, I couldn’t move much much due to recovering from a spinal surgery, so the iPad was my only option.
Drawing all the squiggly details took me back to when I was studying architecture and the history of art. It’s not often that I have architectural details in my art.
Through paint splashes and smudges, lines and squiggles I invite the viewer to raise a glass to the journey ahead.
“Prosecco in Rome” artwork serves as a reminder to embrace daydreaming and cherish every little moment and celebrate little pleasures in life.
