These works are done on cotton or linen canvases prepared by the artist. The works are done over the period of several weeks or months using thin transparent layers of premium grade pigment over an underpainting or grisaille of umber tones, thus allowing a deep inner luminosity and the capturing of subtle detail. This method of painting was widely practiced in the Renaissance as well as in the 17th-19th century.
All colored as well as graphite pencil drawings are 100% lightfast, and are done on acid free archival quality paper.
About the Artist:
Hello, my name is Julia Passamonti-Colamartino. I was born in 1959.
a bilingual first generation Italian-American and full time artist. Each
work that I create is unique, with careful attention being paid to workmanship
A portion of the proceeds helps to feed and care for the kitties, who are all rescues, as well as the wild peacocks that grace our land with their beauty.
Dino Colamartino, my Beloved partner, Soulmate, and Best Friend, transcended this reality in October of 2017. You are sorely missed, my love. RIP (1958-2017)
