"This work was started on the spot and finished by imagination in the studio. With friends painters, we found ourselves in a park to make the portrait of a model who came to pose. The 3-hour session did not allow me to make a finished work, so I took the canvas back to the studio and let my imagination go. I invented an abstract and colored background, with horizontal bands to counterbalance the vertical bust. As for the character herself, I added a flower in her hair and painted her bustier pink so that the scene would be bursting with colour: the pinks would respond to the greens, the orange to the blue reflections of the hair. The young brunette woman reminded me of a Gauguin model and I wanted to push the atmosphere in that direction, through the motifs and the colours. I reworked the face at length to make it soft and evocative of an inner beauty as much as an outer one."

Barbara Petit presents figurative painting arising most frequently from a motif. She favours portraits and life models. In them, she sees a sort of quest for origins, for our human identity.

Learning and passing on painting

Barbara Petit was born in 1977 in Pas-de-Calais. She first took an interest in drawing and composition at a very young age. A few years later, she was introduced to painting by various professional painters. After receiving a number of awards at various events in and around the French capital, she today continues her journey as a painter and teaches painting in Paris. She also regularly provides advice in the practical pages of the magazine Pratique des Arts.

Alongside painting, her work as a journalist has enabled her to learn more about the history of art, notably in her collaboration for the André Derain sketchbooks.

Painting to reveal the beauty of the world

Barbara Petit works most often in a studio when the subject is nature or outside if working on a motif. She sees painting as a way of reproducing the beauty of the world around her, the love she has for it and the love it has for her, with her imagination, emotions and feelings.

Beauty is hidden everywhere, even in the simplest things, like a landscape or a composition… The subject is but a pretext for self-expression. What matters is the painting.
