Exacting in her approach Barbara Ciolino puts her all into every painting. From planning the image and composition, to brushwork and color selection it is there for a good reason. That may sound restrictive, but those controlled elements simply allow for all of the other atmospheric qualities to come to the fore. As in a her marvelous sense of humor, often found in the animal portraits she has done of her own “crowd” (three cats) and those of our client’s favorite beasts. Taking the time to find the right pose, the right light, and getting the personality down make Barbara’s portraits a total success.
But the same is true of her still life images. It is all about the juxtaposition of disparate parts, stunning backdrops and luscious colors.
