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:

Out of all the art I've seen of Jeanne d'Arc, this one truly strikes her very romantically. I just love it!😍

You ever look at something for the first time and your heart swells with blood and you feel the palpitations of the blood flowing through your veins. That's how I feel when I see this painting.

Fantastic!  I am just an amateur, but quality like that and the distinct capturing of emotion cannot be denied.  It reminds me that I am just playing around with colors, primitive drawing and photo-manipulation, while others are creating full scale works that deserve a much higher place.  I would like to check out the commentary and step by step teaching. Thanks...

Great artwork! It sets the mood really well.
Joan's eyes looking towards the sky, hands trying to take away the cross, the flag and immobilize her moves -  all these details reflect a dramatic story of one brave woman.  Perfect!Applaud fella (Reactions)
