Color Swirl

Color Swirl/ oil on board/ 7" x 5"/sold
This is day twenty-eight in the Thirty in Thirty Challenge. My theme is color.

This little dress is filled with the colors that painters need to see and express to show "white". I am also interested today in having the painted child dance. I think it is fascinating to think about using paint to show movement. I am using the edge irregularities, the differences in paint texture, the loss of the fingers  and the random brush directions in the background to attempt to "make her move".

I advanced the small watercolors for Watercolor Wednesday, but I got so caught up in them that I forgot to photograph process shots. That omission will be solved tomorrow.
