This dance focused art piece is inspired by the ocean. I think about the dress designs and colours as much as I do the pose and face I want to create. The dress has a new resin mix I'm creating and improving as I continue to mix with acrylics and acrylic alters. I'm enjoying the unique patterns, textures and blends I'm getting as I mix poured resin with acrylic splashes. This dress is a new step forward in my attempt to create more 3D feeling dresses- complimenting the light ballet poses and expressions.
I used a specific high quality canvas with environmentally sustainable pine backing. This canvas allows me to create more realistic and detailed charcoal art pieces. My unique process of applying charcoal to canvas to create photorealistic art is done through the use of various paint and makeup brushes cut to shape. I seal all pieces with charcoal fixative and acrylic fixative. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
