"The Swan" - This painting represents the Melancholic-Choleric personality type; this type feels things intensely and has a strong desire to get things done correctly. They may be fiercely loyal, while also being sensitive and analytical.
The purple that comes from the Blue Melancholy combined with a touch of that Choleric Red turned out deep and gorgeous, and I love the texture of the pigment salts found throughout the painting.
The plants in the painting derive meaning from the Victorian Language of Flowers:
Ferns - Thoughts, Dreams, Magic
Freesia - Thoughtfulness
Laburnum - Pensive Beauty
Borage - Courage
Garlic - Strength
Dill - Passion
What's one of the biggest strengths of the Melancholic-Choleric? In the model's own words:
”My emotional intelligence and empathy.”
