ArtBead Scene: April 2017

 
Matamoe or Landscape with Peacocks
Paul Gauguin
1892
Oil On Canvas
My interpretation is with Mary Harding two hole beads and waxed linen. I used a Golem ceramic bead as the clasp. I picked these beads out of my stash because they have a different color scheme on either side and that is what struck me about the painting.... it has a very distinct cool color palette on the one side of the painting and a warm color palette on the other.
Check out ArtBeadScene.blogspot.com for more info on the Monthly Challenge.

I also made this very tribal necklace that was inspired by this painting. I had this huge amazing heart focal by Stacie Louise Smith and I used leftover beads from my stash in the same flat shape for this over the head statement piece!

  1. Until you called it out here I had somehow not noticed the cool/warm sides in the artwork. Not sure how I missed that but you certainly did a great job of bringing out the effect

  5. I agree with Bijoux you saw something that I only picked and chose from but you pulled it together beautifully!
