11" x 14" watercolor 300# Arches paper unframed $250.00
This is a painting of a beautiful dancer in a quiet moment, working out a hand movement for her ballet.
I am showing the development of my watercolor so that you can see how layers and layers of color are applied to get the nearly finished product. Beginning with the bottom photo, I splattered masking after the first layer. It is important to see that a window of sorts was applied after the first layer. I liked it but did not want the painting to be too pastel, so subsequent layers of opposite colors were applied in the background to give a feeling of opulence. Lastly I applied some spots a la Ted Nuttall. Which layer do you prefer?
I always think the first layer is magical.
