Edward in Volterra by LittleSeaSparrow Edward in Volterra by LittleSeaSparrow
Edward in Volterra
He steps out in the sun...and...
I love how Rob did this scene although it was so short.

This is a small monochrome oil study (all done in burnt sienna) which I want to use to do a colour version, maybe a bit larger. The outlines are done in sepia ink.
Petite étude monochrome (terre de sienne brûlée) à l'huile sur carton toilé. Les contours sont faits à l'encre de Chine sépia. Je voudrais l'utiliser comme modèle pour faire une version en couleur.
On canvas board /sur carton toilé) - 27x22 cm (10 3/4"x8 3/4").

:wow: May I have permission to use this beautiful picture as a header (possibly modified in taste for header design) on our journals at :iconthetwilightsagagroup:?

Of course you will be recognized/credited in the journal's footer if you say yes. I'm hoping! :heart:

Great piece. I'm not a fan of twilligt, nor Robert, but this piece is outstanding. Great job.

Thanks, that's a lovely compliment! :blush: You know, I've noticed that several visitors who are completely outside the "Twilight sphere" :) or who have no idea at all what Twilight is or who Robert is seem to like this piece. They don't care about the subject, and value this picture for what it is. And I try to do the same for other form arts, even if I don't know what it's about. Maybe that's the clue after all, we should always look at pictures without prejudice and maybe without reading the title or knowing what it's about... ;)
Thanks for your nice comment anyway, I appreciate it a lot!

Thanks! :hug: It's one of my favourites, ever, and the first time I was experimenting with this deep red colour and daring to add ink outlines. Actually, I didn't really know where I was going!! :D :D

The colors are so vivid-- it's like he takes a step from hell (Bella's death) into heaven!

I love working with that colour! And I like your way of seeing it - it's true, he takes that step to die, because life is like hell to him since he believes she died
Thanks for your lovely comment!

I'm conflicted because I used to love Twilight but stopped loving it a long time ago (mostly due to how Bella's character is whiny, manipulative and dependent of men's love) but I did love this scene when I read it and your technique is so spectacular that this has become one of my instant favorite works of art!! :) so yeah :blush: thanks for sharing it!!!!!!

Thanks, that's a really beautiful compliment from someone who moved on from Twilight! I am truly honoured and touched. I can understand your point though. Not everything is perfect in this saga, there were moments when I felt like you, particularly in the books, not in the films. But on the whole, after all, if you strip the story down to its bare core, you have a beautiful love story with all the universal themes. This is why it works so well, else it would have died down long ago. Then there's the RP phenomenon, which does help a lot :)) So many factors. But thank you for your lovely comment and I'm gald you like this image, which is very dear to me.

Thanks! I am really touched. Actualy, I wanted to do it as a classical painting. It almost doesn't matter if it's Edward or not, it's about painting the human body, and maybe seizing a specific moment. It's Edward, true, but it could also be someone else. It would be interesting to show the pic to someone who doesn't know anything about Twilight and see how they react.
Thanks again!

But but..I've just clicked on Send and you've already faved it?? I'm so happy you like it anyway! I love oil, it gives you so many possibilities and it's got a look and feel I can't find with other techniques. And that scene... it was so breathtaking to see it for real!!
