This was a kick to paint, though intimidating for me!!  For one, I took my photos while the dancers were in motion, so obviously I didn't have the detail I was used to being able to look at, and, two, I haven't used these colors alot.  I found that the blur in the photos was to my advantage and allowed me to concentrate on the FEEL of the scene rather than trying to get everything exact.  Fun.

You really captured the swirling and movement. Going out of your comfort zone, what a great way to improve!

I love this painting, you really captured the energy of the dance. This is a painting of my dance troupe, Tribal Moon Belly Dance.
