THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
“Woman with Beads” is a dreamy, almost dazed impression by artist Petr Ldin. Soft pastels on a passionate red background depict a woman in a trance-like dance, with a string of colorful beads around her neck. The oil on canvas is unusually soothing and induces a sense of utter relaxation in the viewer as we can feel what she feels. We are almost immediately calmed and our mind is cleared of all the clutter of things mundane and we sit back and enjoy the image and the sentiment. This painting will want soft lighting in a cozy room for full effect.
