"We can combine my realism and your surrealism. Make it seamless yet distinct."

Yael couldn't help but frown at the proposition. Sure, it made sense -- hyperrealistic surrealism was an easy way to combine their styles. But to be honest, the characterstics of her style that Yael preferred to hold onto were the physical textures, the shadows and highlights, the choice of colors -- not really the composition. Sure, composition was important, but it wasn't everything. Yael didn't think she'd enjoy having to paint a bunch of boring skin you could find from a photograph, even if it was in some surrealistic design.

As much as Yael wanted to fight for what she wanted, she recognized that she had to compromise -- hopefully, it wouldn't be on elements that she didn't want to give up. Nonetheless, Yael was fairly flexible, and could work around things in order to get her way -- Bernadette's idea was definitely not the end of the world.


"We'd have to brainstorm the subject matter as well, but perhaps use a muse?"

Yael shrugged, the movement of her shoulders relaxed and somewhat flippant. "Sure, if it comes to it, that sounds fine," she said, her tone light and exposing little of her internal thoughts. "I dunno, I don't like to tie myself to specific things. We could take inspiration from a multitude of things and combine them into something original but cohesive."

Yael was one to take inspiration from the outside world rather than her own internal thoughts or musings when it came to her art; she was never particularly introspective or "in her head." So she supposed she could understand the appeal of a muse, but she usually didn't care for such things. Yael's muses were small fragments of puzzles and singular sensations from colorful experiences. She loved to capture the cattiness of a smirk, the dark, heated passion of one's rage, the pressing waves of heat from the sun, and convey them in a visual art form that still allowed the viewer to viscerally understand the feelings in the painting. Yael was never too inspired by any one thing or any one person. She found that far too restricting.

"Hey, about the realism and surrealism thing," Yael brought up. "That sounds like a great thing to branch off of. If we happen to use human figures, we could definitely make the base realistic -- like her skin and her hair. But it'd be fun to incorporate other things too -- like a surrealistic landscape reflected in her eyes. What do you think?"

Yael had no issue with realism, but she sure as hell wasn't going to paint basic human eyes with basic highlights if she could help it.
