Hairspray

by Audrey
(Brittany, France)

Canvas on board - 17 x 27 cm. I started lessons for the first time last October. Our first theme was 'water'. Not easy. Saw a photo with this idea of a girl throwing her head back with water forming an arc.


Tried to achieve movement and a sense of fun. I found painting the water quite difficult.

As I was pleased with the effect, I painted the same picture again but bigger - 46 x 55 cm. I added silver paint to some of the drops of water. However, I think the picture looks like a comic illustration.

I'm tring to achieve more originality in my work and perhaps more abstraction.

Any comments would be appreciated - good or bad.

Next theme is Travel - any ideas???

Hi Audrey, You did a great job with the arc formation. If you like boats, Bob has a nice tutorial on drawing a boat for your travel theme.
