Painting finished

A friend of mine asked me to do a painting of the hula girl that I drew in my journal a while back. I’ve been working on it for a while…but finally finished it. Here it is. I painted it in acrylics. I haven’t done an acrylic painting for a long time. It wasn’t easy to get back into it. But it was definitely exciting to be doing art in a medium I don’t often use. Sometimes a change of pace can get those creative juices flowing again. (I photographed this painting with my digital camera and it came out really yellow…the background is actually almost white) Also, I am doing a project with my second graders right now based on the art of Wayne Thiebaud…

…can you see the influence? I have always loved his style. If I was a painter I would want to use color the way he does…but he seems to have mastered it…I wish I could understand how he “sees” those colors to paint them. You have to look at his work up close to really see what I am talking about. Check it out.
