Drawn Near

Drawn Near

“She stands between two realms, going after the one she loves to draw him near to her.“

Dimitra Milan

"Drawn Near" portrays a young couple captured in that moment before sharing a kiss. Dimitra's surreal and atmospheric paintings, embody the power of beauty, hope, and love. The original "Drawn Near" mixed media oil painting on paper is 27" x 19" and has been SOLD. If you are interested in purchasing a similar painting, please check out my currently Available Originals or a Commission!

Dimitra has mastered several techniques for her classic oil pieces, bold mixed media oil paintings, and gestural acrylic paintings on paper. All of her paintings embody rich, dark colors and stylized brush strokes. She uses subtractive tools to develop the highlights of every piece, bringing the form to life. After allowing the initial layer of paint to dry, Dimitra then adds more paint and layers creating different effects and textures; some elements are left abstract and others are rendered more realistically.

Dimitra's mixed media paintings receive this same thoughtful treatment, only with several additional elements. Some include layering different printed papers on the piece, creating one-of-a-kind characteristics and a collage effect. On others, she may be inspired to add mediums like spray paint.

A young master painter, Dimitra Milan's whimsical and surreal artwork reflects a dreamy world where anything is possible.
