The magic of love is felt in the first kiss you have with someone who has stolen your heart.
About the work
This illustration started as a simple sketch that evolved into the art nouveau piece you see today. It wasn’t until the subject was drawn that I developed the them of first time love. The art symbolizes the first kiss shared with someone you have fallen in love with. I envision love like that as bright, light, pink, and pure. I used these concepts as a guide for how to paint the illustration and for using curved and swirly lines to decorate the background and foreground.
