Giving Birth, an original acrylic painting by Luisa Manea.
My model in giving birth is pregnant and doesn't know the gender of her baby; this is why her eyes are covered. The pink ribbon over her eyes is symbolic as the baby is a girl.
The symbol of water is heavily used in this painting to represent the fetus breathes liquid just like fish do. And we use water during birthing in many ways: washing the baby, cleaning, birthing in a water bath, and using a wet flannel on the mother...
Thick impasto paint has been used to give an opalescence, shimmery water like look to the painting.
