Mixed-Media Dancing Girl

I do a lot of faces, but I've always been afraid of whole bodies.  Well, not anymore.  I threw caution to the wind and painted this dancing girl.  I have to admit, I'm pretty pleased with myself.

Yes, I know that I cheated with the long dress.....but, she does have bare arms.

I figured the safest way to go with my first whole person, was to create a very textured and colorful background, using that for the dress and hair.  It was a confidence builder.  Soon, I'll venture into, completely, painting the clothes too.

So this is what we have.

This painting is for sale on Etsy!
