illustration friday { tango

This piece was super hard for me to create without a reference, and I’m still not happy. But maybe some of you will enjoy the piece anyway, maybe you can find the enchantment I cannot after working on it so hard. I think it’s like when you cook, you don’t always taste the flavors.

  • You should give your self credit! What you illustrated was PASSION, and that is what Tango is all about. I struggled with this one also and spent “way” to much time…and I had something totally different in mind. It got to the point where I had my daughter to choose the best thumbnail and just did it!

  • Thank you Cyndia, what a wonderful compliment! I was striving to express the dancer’s passion and the heat of the dance itself. Even if striving felt more like stretching, I’m so glad to hear it was reflected in your eyes!

  • What a beautiful piece!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! You asked what medium I used for my illustrations…it’s a mix of acrylic paint, ink, and scrapbook paper. The scrapbook paper adds a bit of texture and I love the designs. It can be a bit tedious cutting out each piece, but I like what the paper adds to each piece.
