The Dancer

I am still working on the Hand online class. This is the second painting, using 2 hands.  The instructor made hers with a bathing suit and big legs, but  i turned mine into a dancer  It was such fun. I started by drawing on my 100 lb paper, then I went over it with white gesso.  After that was dry I used a large alphabet stencil that I love. I painted over it with the turquoise and purple.

 I only used 3-4 colors.  White, buff, flesh, red oxide and a little red.  The background is purple and turquoise.
