|Detail of the finished "6 beat swing" painting. - oil on acrylic and aerosol on 48" x 60" canvas.|
|The beginning of "6 beat" - black rolled and brushed on, yellow and teal aerosol is used to block out the general layout of the figures.|
|Black acrylic is used to sketch in the actual figures.|
|Really happy with the look and feel of this fella.|
Once the face was wiped down, reset, repainted (and she no longer looked like a creepy, dead person) the rest of the painting fell into place.
|I was able to add pinwheels, confetti, rays of color, etc giving "6 beat" an explosive feel. It's meant to convey how wonderful dancing can feel - joyful, celebratory, intimate, fun!|
|Hopefully, I was able to convey the tension in a pose like this by highlighting the muscles in her leg and the grip of their hands.|
"6 beat swing" is only one of at least a dozen pieces on view at Eden Fine Art galleries.
