Art Practice

Apprenticing with Rosetti…

My Beatrice study – a practice in shading, blending and shadowing, painted on my IPad using the Procreate painting app and my Apple Pencil.

I was recently inspired to paint this after the passing of my sweet grandmother, who shares the name of Beatrice.

Dante Gabrielle Rosetti – May 12 1828 – April 9 1882

A stanza of  Rosetti’s poem “The Portrait”

This is her picture as she was:

It seems a thing to wonder on,

As though mine image in the glass

Should tarry when myself am gone.

I gaze until she seems to stir,–

Until mine eyes almost aver

That now, even now, the sweet lips part

To breathe the words of the sweet heart:–

And yet the earth is over her.

Dante Gabriel Rosetti
