Ladies of Steemit, Volume 7 | Artist Selection

ladies-of-steemit-banner-7.jpg

This week, we're showcasing​ five female artists who create in different mediums and showcase a variety of muses in their portfolio. From pen and ink to questioning what "qualifies" as art, each of these women are making a mark on the Steemit visual creatives community.

Each Wednesday, we're curating posts by the Ladies of Steemit, established/whales and new/minnows (and everyone in-between), bringing you the most talented female/femme/feminine voices on the platform. Subject matter is entirely based on the writers featured and no subject is off-limits!

We are very proud to present...


@lilyraabe

is a champion for all art, and her published articles on Steemit are a mere fragment of her contribution. She curates an art digest, hosts art mix-up contests, and has begun sharing art grants that could help Steemians continue to nurture their craft IRL.

What is Art and Who Defines It?

Since people first started making it, the debate has raged: what exactly is art and how do we define it?
I interact with art every day: I’m either making it, writing about it, or viewing it. And, because of the communities in which I work, I regularly see powerful expressions of creativity far beyond the walls of a traditional gallery or theatre space.

Through Time and Space - NEW Original Artwork

'Through Time and Space' is a tiny, feature-packed feast of shimmering purples which burst into life when the sun hits them. It looks so different in the sunlight that it's almost unrecognisable! This is one of those artworks where the original is so impossible to replicate that anyone buying it will have a huge advantage over those purchasing prints, as its multi-faceted nature can only truly be appreciated in the flesh...

Farecrest. Which bird will be next?

I use the watercolor "Nevskaya Palitra": ultramarine, titian, cadmium yellow medium, neutral black, scarlet, white zinc. Paper Palazzo 280g / m2, 70% cotton.

I paint the silhouette of a bird and draw the main parts: head, beak, wing, tail, paws. Now I can go to watercolor.

🌹🐱 "The Power of your Inner Cat" 🐱🌹 A Cat Muse! 🦋🌸 ♥ ILLUSTRATION ♥

If there is a creature that will always fascinate with is graceful pace, agility, stealth and enigmatic glare, is the Cat. Loved by many, not so appreciated by others, they will always be part of human history as symbol of Elegance, Greatness, Power and even, as happened at Ancient Egypt: Divinity.

@adelepazani
