There is a great challenge this month at ARTastic Challenge blog, you can get to the challenge here!
The Inspirational painting is 'Seven Girls Running' by John Maitland
The Criteria is Girls only!
So, with that in mind I decided to get my paintbrushes
and paints out and paint a canvas.
What I took from the artwork!
Girls spread out across the page,
the motled background,
and of course 'girls' only
Six Ladies Dancing
I used brighter colors for my background and the stippling technique to blend colors.
I painted the dancing ladies in black, which raises them slightly off the page and gives the canvas more depth.
I like how they are dancing across the canvas
Here is a close up
I used a technique where you repeat the feet (as shadows) and drag the brush slowly off the page so the feet seem to disappear
Thanks for a lovely challenge, I'm really happy how my canvas turned out!
