Given the opportunity to replicate an
older art piece from the 20th century, I
chose my hand at a piece within the Art
Nouveau movement. Alphonse Mucha
is one of the major players within
that movement and has inspired me
to accomplish his artistic illustration skill.
I chose this piece to replicate because of the playfulness of the subject and the colors used within the artwork.
The original was completed with a lithographic procedure. I chose to make my replica with Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor coloring pencils.
When I first saw Alphonse Mucha’s work, I always wanted to try my hand at his lush-fluid style of illustration. I believe I emulated it well and focused on the major characteristics and details in his work.

The picture on the right displays how the coloring pencils add shading and texture to the piece.
A closer view of the detail put into the work. A white gel pen was used to create the highlights.
