I started this lovely lady months ago, but I let fear and business get in the way of finishing this one for a long time. Have you ever been afraid to mess up, so you just didn’t do anything? I think we’ve all been trapped by that at some point. What are you working on? I’d love to see what you’re up to!
It’s been a while, but I’m back at the keyboard and the canvas. This dancing beauty is in progress (and ears are SO hard to get right!) with acrylic on canvas. I really want to paint all the time and get her finished, but I also don’t want to rush and make a mess.
What are you working on this week?
Continuing the dancer theme, I have been working on some flamenco dancers. The passion and fire in a live performance is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. If you ever get the chance to see flamenco in person, do it. The give and take between the dancers and the musicians is a beautiful act of shared creation. The intensity level is on par with Argentine tango; you’re drawn in, and at the same time you feel like an interloper.
At any rate, here’s a sketchbook rendering.
And here is a canvas sketched and ready for paint. My daughter and niece and I have an art evening planned, so maybe she’ll get some color tonight!
What are you working on? I’d love to see in the comments or in the Mabbat FB group!
