I listed my mixed media painting, 'Dancing Queen', from earlier this week onto my online shop :) I have been playing with Instagram again - sort of left it to the side for awhile. It shows the texture wonderfully. You can follow me here.
|"Dancing Girl" - Mixed Media Painting, 9x12"|
She has some lovely gold accents in the painting - her crown, and then a little bit more by the egg in the bottom. I think having some down there balances it out a little bit more.
The heart texture has to be my favourite part of the whole painting. I just love how it grabbed the little bits of paint here and there as I painted other areas. It seems to join the elements of the egg and the dancer together too.
The background has a lovely texture to it as well, from layering the different mediums on. I thought about putting an element, or text, in the top right corner, but after sitting and debating I felt that it would take away from the 'serenity' of the girl. Her face is so melancholy, and can be interpreted different ways, and for this particular piece - which did have some personal emotions in it - I wanted the viewer to feel what they personally felt when they looked at it. Not to direct them towards a specific emotion - which I try to do with some other pieces.
Her hands here are probably the element I'm "most proud off" - hands are super hard for me, and getting them to look normal is a major 'win' for me.
Once again, she is available to a loving home. :) Happy Saturday!
