View Full Version : Capoeira

03-19-2010, 10:15 AM
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance. The fight is accompanied by a percussion instrument with only one string called Berimbau and drums. To the extent that the rithm of the music increases, the fight becomes intense for a great period of time until exhaustion. Enlarge the image for a better view.:)

Full of energy, motion and colour dear Oriane. Its another masterpiece from you. Great work my friend:)

Lovely, energetic, dynamic and magnetic.... these are my words for this work.
I like the the positions of figurs, how the author cought them up in action with his brushes. And palette reminds me of a jar full of brightcolored candies.

As usually, outstanding!:)

Excellent Oriane!

Dynamic work Oriane. The impasto is so well done, I almost feel you must have used stand thickened walnut oil to get the viscosity of some of these strokes! I suspect this one will take a long time to dry!!:)

I've seen these dancers perform, you caught their intense energy in a beautiful impressionistic view......

Vigour and strength are the words that came to my mind when I opened this, Oriane.....this is an event I would like to witness.

Wow, Oriane this piece has such pizazz to it! But, I have to admit that AT-TA already stated all of the adjectives that I would like to express with this painting: lovely, energetic, dynamic and magnetic....this pretty much says it all for me, too!!!

Puxa cara! Acho que já visitou a Bahia só quem já passou por lá pode descrever tão bem. Linda pintura reproduz a coreografia com perfeição.

Painted as a martial arts match. Fast, darting, jabbing, sweeping, blurred colors, working hard to hold a target. Action cranked up a few notches.

Very aggressive, Orianelima. It feels a lot like an internal painting as well, with all the organs and muscles flooding in a white water surge of nerve signals and blood cells. Pushing the body communication to the outermost edge of co-ordination.

What a rush in the internal rapids!!!!!

Agree with AT-TA and Eileen: lovely, energetic, dynamic and magnetic:)
Great work Oriane!

03-22-2010, 07:37 AM

Scott and Pedro, thank you very much.:):)

The dynamic, sweat and swing are all from those masterful fragmented colours which seem to joyfully take part to the match confronting one to each other ... A burst of energy and elegance!
