Gothic Ballerinas in Mixed Media

 

Hello Friends!

A few days ago I covered this 12″x16″ canvas with a few different patterns of washi tape in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal directions.

After thinking about it for a couple of days, I decided I wanted to paint a couple of goth ballerinas since I haven’t created any in a long time. Also, I have never done any in mixed media.

First I penciled my ballerinas onto the canvas where I wanted them.

Second, I painted the left side with Golden’s Quinacridone Magenta acrylics. And I painted the right side with Golden’s Hansa Yellow Light acrylics.

I left the diagonal line ofย  bird washi tape in the middle unpainted to divide the canvas and give it some character. Then I decided to combine these two paint colors which made an interesting burnt orange. So for fun I painted the bottom triangle area with this color.

Lastly, I decided to paint the head pieces and dresses with my Golden’s Teal acrylics. I really like the way the washi tape shows through the paints. And the best part is…I used my left hand to paint the big areas, but I did have to use my right hand to paint the details. So my arm and shoulder are not hurting now!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

 

Ballerinas in the Rain

Hello Friends!

I think I am done with flowers for a while. So yesterday afternoon I decided to paint some ballerinas who got caught in the rain!

This was fun. I didn’t spend too much time on it, though. I had a black canvas I was wanting to paint on and already had umbrellas in mind to do. So I added some ballerinas for good measure!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Gothic Ballerinas #1

I did these spontaneously a few weeks ago. They were actually the first ballerinas I did. It is in acrylics. I do like the way the dresses lined up and the one in the shadows on the far left.
