Dance with your Heart.
Your feet will follow.
There is something so fun about painting ballerinas.
I came across this idea and painting demonstration by Julie Hyde that uses cling wrap to create an ethereal effect of movement to the ballerina’s skirt.
Using a wet on wet technique, you apply crinkled cling wrap to the wet paint. After allowing it to dry thoroughly, when you lift the cling wrap, a beautiful texture is created.
I also bought a book by an artist I recently discovered – Ann Blockley, called Experimental Landscapes in Watercolor. She also uses cling wrap and salt and ink and other various techniques to create dramatic expressive and interpretive landscapes. I’m looking forward to trying out some new ideas from that.
In the meantime, I hope you will dance….
with your heart, with paint, while baking, while working….
whatever it is you are doing.
And Cherish the Moments.
Cheers & Hugs,
