Joan of Arc by DonatoArts Joan of Arc by DonatoArts
One of my favorite paintings from this past year, Joan of Arc, has just been posted to my website gallery. This work was created over five days back in May and is now featured in my latest step by step DVD. Released just this week in celebration of the 600th anniversary of Joan's birth, the film illuminates my entire painting process, from rough sketches to the final oil glazes.

I am very happy with the success of this painting, both for its technical achievements as well as conceptual base - capturing Joan of Arc in a moment of transcendence. An in depth commentary about the work is available in the gallery:

There are so many good things to say about this stellar art piece, I don't know whether to write a book or let this magnificent painting speak for itself... This is a perfect Joan of Arc painting

All of your work is amazing, but this is one of my favorites.  The dynamic and perspective are magnificent, and the depth of feeling in the expressions of your subjects is just incredible.

This is simply incredible.. I know it's unlikely, but do you think you will ever consider selling giclée prints of your work? I'd love to have a copy of this, fascinated by Joan of Arc.

This is absolutely phenomenal. The composition, the lighting and the rendering of skin and fabric are among the best I have seen on this site. It very much reminds me of Rubens or Jacques-Louis David.

gorgeous artwork. The reflection, lighting, and your capturing of the movement and mood is unparalleled. Easily one of my top 5 favorite oil paintings. But (I'm sure you have heard this a lot) Joan was like 14. But honestly I'm not picking on you, i just thought it was a fun fact. Joan of arc looks a lot like the joan from the silent film "The passion of joan of arc", which is a gorgeous movie.

I show your Davis Arts career piece every year to my beginning art students. Many of them have gone on to pursue art at SCAD, Ringling, Pratt, and the ART INSTITUTES. I thought you would like to know you are affecting future artists. Paint on!
