Degas in Acrylics and Acrylic Inks

Hello Friends!

This is another project I began last week. First I drew it lightly onto the canvas by eyeballing a picture of this painting from a book I have. I used a water soluble pencil for that. Then I painted it in acrylics and acrylic inks on a 12″x16″ canvas.

This project was done as an art challenge by my friend Debra who is also an artist. She asked if our other friend, Emma, and I would like to paint something from one of our favorite artists. She said I couldn’t pick Van Gogh, though, ha ha! (I have a sneaking suspicion that she is doing a Van Gogh!) But my absolute two favorites are Edgar Degas and Vincent van Gogh, so that was fine with me!

I have done this painting in watercolor before, but not as detailed. But I have never tried to do one of his in acrylics, so it was a lot of fun! I didn’t try to match the colors exactly. Besides, all the colors look different depending on which book I look in or looking at a picture on the internet, so that was no big deal.

This is my version from his painting called “Blue Dancers” which he painted in oils in Paris, c.1895. I think it has always been my favorite of all his ballerina paintings.

Have a wonderful day! ๐Ÿ™‚

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
