Gothic Ballerinas #2
This is the second painting I did on Thursday very quickly as you can probably tell! I love the way the yellow of the dresses turned out on the black canvas which is actually an old painting I didn’t like that I repainted black over so I could experiment with a black canvas. I couldn’t figure out how to get the images of the sketches onto the black canvas, though, so I had to eyeball them. That’s why the arms turned out funny on the third figure! Her right arm is quite long! 🙂 Also, I only did three of the sketches I had. The fourth figure is in the watercolor painting I already posted.
This was another learning experience for sure! My daughter loves this one, and after a while I have come to love it also.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!
