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.
 Then from there I drew my figure, and then painted using acrylics and a 2" brush.
 I only used 3-4 colors.  White, buff, flesh, red oxide and a little red.  The background is purple and turquoise.
I drew the image with a charcoal pencil, then painted with out using any water. Just  a moist brush and paint. This was so much fun.  It is big. 20x26. 









Long May it Wave

 Back to my roots! LOVE the American Flag.  This one was woven, using two paintings. watercolor
