Art Description

Painting: Pastel, Paint, Acrylic, Gold Leaf, Pencil on Canvas.

I created the first Dancer painting in 2012. It was smaller and the format was square. The painting was about to be published in a number of magazines and a book in 2016 so I was faced with the challenge to recreate it in a size/format that was suitable for these publications. I ended up with a better (I think) piece than the first one.

The painting technique I've used here resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I start with pencils, pastels, and varnish. After that, I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using a combination of mediums, often acrylics and oils, but sometimes gold leaf and inks.
