The Dancer Oil Painting

Dancer painting rita foster"The Dancer" has been a long time favorite of mine because it was when I began to paint it that I realized things like toes, ears, and noses have a much redder tone than the rest of human skin. I also really liked painting all of the tenseness and creases in one foot and then jumping back to the other more relaxed foot. I didn't plan out the compliments of cool verses warm in this, I actually think it was more of a subconscious decision I made. In any case, I just enjoyed painting this all around because there were so many things involved that I learned throughout the semester. Such as, reflective surfaces, and losing edges. Losing edges has been so helpful in creating depth.
