Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers – Watercolor
“Those slippers will never come off…as long as you’re alive. But that’s not what’s worrying me. It’s how to do it. These things must be done delicately or you’ll hurt the spell.” the wicked witch says. Hello everyone. Just wanted to share my latest painting. It’s definitely NOT a ballerina. I may or may not be done with those for awhile. I have another project lined up to work on today.
I just bought this tube of Aureolin (Cobalt Yellow) watercolor paint a couple of weeks ago. I had to get it online, because our local art store doesn’t carry it. I have been reading about it in books so I just had to get some. Then I was feeling anxious to use it! I had a print out of this scene from “The Wizard of Oz” lying around as one of my projects to do. I experimented with the yellow and decided it was perfect for the shock sparks.
The slippers were a real challenge and her legs. All in all, it was a lot of fun to do.
And…a little closer…….
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
