Continuing on with my dancer theme, I've created an expression of beautiful movement with an earthly feel. I love the colour mixes in opals and any geological creation for that matter. I also enjoy expressing the beauty in the nude human form through high contrast charcoal. This piece is my first upper body nude mixed with my unique made up dancer acrylic/resin dresses. I included a variety of reds to allow for both subtle and strong geological looking effects.
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 used a specific ready to hang canvas with environmentally sustainable pine backing behind high quality cotton duck canvas and also a thick 4cm cross pine frame. This heavier canvas allows me to create more realistic and detailed charcoal art pieces. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
