Have you ever considered a painting as a backdrop for showcasing gemstones? Can paintings play a role in window dressing for jewelry display? I tried.
Here is one of my little squares that has a geologic abstract art inspiredd by Lapiz Lazuli gemstone. The stone by itself is spectacular in detail and needs no fuss around it to stand out. Gorgeous blue with gold streaks, as designed by nature, never cease to amaze.
This is but another attempt to try tone over tone. Surprise! Surprise! It works. The broad palette knife strokes complement the intense detailing on the gemstone.
Here, one art form (of designing jewellery) complements the other. This painting (along with other gemstone inspiredd artworks) is currently being used as a backdrop for jewelry display in a lifestyle boutique in Chennai.
