~o~ Vanitas ~o~

I wasn't sure about the category with this one, but I guess landscapes'll do. Used a reference pic for the cello.

Enjoy...

It's great! Shocked me -pleasantly- to find a cello when searching for "enchated forest" : ) just when I'm about to start to play it. I discovered it last year and decided to switch from violin to cello, my real 'thing'. It's been a pleasant surprise, you categoraized it right ; ) Dislike the skull, though. If I could be able to paint, I'll surely do a version of this for myself, to hang on my study wall: still mainly green/brown with some touches of violet and blue, to give it a certain mystic touch... maybe at nightfall, and the bird woudl surely be an owl! (I love those heheh!). Don't mean to criticize at all, it's just the idea popping in my head and so I wrote it :$ As I said, I love it, great work! I'll just shout up and keep browsing... hehe!

Thanks^^ In the arts, vanitas is a type of symbolic work of art especially associated with baroque still life paintings during the 16th and 17th centuries. "Vanitas" loosely translated corresponds to the meaninglessness of earthly life, and musical instruments and skulls were popular symbols, which is why I chose to add the latter. The forest and the bird are just part of my personal way of handling the subject ;)

Das Cello sieht wunderschön aus. =) Der Betrachter fängt an, sich zu fragen, wie lange es dort wohl schon stehen mag, da bereits kleine Pflanzen darauf wachsen.
Ich frage mich, ob der Totenkopf zu dem Cellospieler gehört hat, oder ob er eine andere Bedeutung hat. Würdest du mich darüber aufklären? ^^
Das sanfte Licht, welches du in diesem Bild verwendet hast, gibt dem Bild eine ruhige und harmonische Atmosphäre. =) Vor allem dort, wo das Licht durch das Blätterdach scheint.
Durch den Einsatz von Perspektive und Licht, schweift das Auge automatisch über das gesamte Bild von unten nach oben. Ich glaube, dass das der Atmosphäre auch noch hilft, sich weiter aufzubauen. =)
Dadurch, dass du im Vordergrund, vor allem beim Cello, viele Details verwendet hast, und diese langsam auslaufen lässt, verstärkt sich der Eindruck räumlicher Tiefe noch. ^_^
Auch, dass der Vordergrund dunkler ist, als der Hintergrund und das Blätterdach sorgen für mehr räumlichen Eindruck.

Mich erstaunt es immer wieder, wie du es schaffst, deine Bilder so zu komponieren, dass du alles berücksichtigst, um einen möglichst perfekten Effekt zu erzielen! :clap:

Übrigens: Der Vogel ist auch super! =D Er gibt dem Bild etwas besonderes und fantasievolles. ^^

Dankeschön. Das ist ja ein Mega-Comment :D
Ob der Totenkopf zum Cellospieler gehört, darüber hab ich mir nicht so viele Gedanken gemacht. Das Bild entstand nachdem ich mich in einem Kurs an der Uni mit Vanitas-Stilleben beschäftigt hatte. Da soll die Vergänglichkeit der Menschen gezeigt werden und beliebte Symbole waren u.a. Totenschädel und Musikinstrumente. Das hier ist nun meine Variante davon ;)

Why is it called vanitas thought?

:iconjerry8448:
jerry8448 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. During the sixteenth and seventeenth century vanitas still lifes were popular throughout europe. Vanitas could be translated into "meaninglessness of life". Common symbols were skulls and musical instruments, amoung others. This is just my take on the subject... ;)
