The Dancer

The Dancer

After completing “A bit of skirt” I said that transparent skirts were a thing to avoid. Well I couldn’t resist another go.

You get one go at each brush stroke on the skirt, attempting to touch it again results in a red – brown mush being spread over the work. The top was easier as it was dabbed on to achieve the pattern.

Splitanix

It makes a change to be putting the colour into the background rather than the subject. Life would be much easier if these dancers weren’t so muscly.

A bit of skirt

A bit of skirt

The latest ‘dancer’ painting completed this week. I thought that using transparent paint would make the  skirt a lot easier than it was. Must put it on the list of things to avoid!
