"The Sloth" - This painting represents the Phlegmatic-Sanguine type; this is a common combination found, and they are the friendliest of the Phlegmatic Types. This person is loyal, accomodating, independent, and more socially oriented.
I chose the sloth as a friendly, calm animal that is well-liked by just about everyone.
The bright, beautiful green here came from mixing the Yellow and Green pigment salts together, and I love the golden pops left in the flowers and the edge of her hair.
The plants in the painting derive meaning from the Victorian Language of Flowers:
Rush - Calm
Boxwood - Constancy
Houseleek - Vivacity
Delphinium - Fun
What's one of the biggest strengths of the Phlegmatic-Sanguine? In the model's own words:
"The Sloth" is an 18x24" watercolor painting on paper. Will ship rolled in a tube, with protective paper and plastic.
