Lana Del Rey is a very soulful artist with a slightly raspy voice that reminds me of 1920’s Bel Aire. This painting is inspired by the song Million Dollar Man and a few of her music videos which feature red roses and bumblebees inspiring for me a hearst castle-esque marble statue. I started with some random cool colors and simply coated and dripped them for a while, eventually I added some crude roses. I wasn’t to happy with my product so I asked for critique from a friend and she said I needed a main focal point which is my statue in the center. The feeling I am trying to evoke love and messiness being important to beauty.
