Hortus Conclusus (watercolor and black indian ink, November 2010)
A depiction of the Hortus Conclusus, the emblematic enclosed garden in which Mary was often pictured in late medieval and renaissance art. So you might be wondering... Why the carnation flower? What are the other species depicted and what is their symbolic meaning in the context of the scene? You may see these and other questions answered by becoming a patron and supporting my artistic activity! The completed painting is available for public view without restrictions, but by becoming my patron you will have an in-depth insight on my composition and painting process, from the very scratch paper to the final results. This includes access to my exclusive posts, pictures and videos. Depending on the pledge plan you choose you may even get a sort of prizes in your mailbox. Please check the details on the pledge plan page. Thank you for supporting!
