Here is a little painting, acrylic on paper 5" x 7" of two girls dancing. I am the girl on the right, and this was my sixth birthday. The photograph was very dark, but I reinvented the the colors to keep the scene sort of light and airy. I let a lot of brush strokes be, and rubbed through in some areas to let a pinky-beige background show through. I like the loose brushwork that grows more tightly knit together around the focal points of the two faces. It's something that I'm still experimenting with and working on.
