Dark Monarch - Art
Dark Monarch. In this simple piece, the beauty of flight is captured with simple lines and a single, evocative color choice. The form in the painting is the image of a creature of flight, its wings outstretched as it soars through the air. The elegant mobility of the creature is captured in this piece, and one can almost feel the wind rushing past the flying form, rushing around its wings and body with an intense speed and a rushing noise that is almost deafening. This flying form is the only significant feature of this painting, which focuses on a single, central object soaring against a vacant background.
The monochromatic color scheme of this painting adds to its simplicity and elegance. The creature of flight in this piece is depicted in a beautiful shade of purple. Typically associated with royalty, purple gives the image in this painting a regal, commanding impression. Flight is a special privilege bestowed upon certain creatures, and in many ways, this gives birds and insects that fly a superior position, as though they are the royalty of this planet.
