In process detail of "Hot to Trot," 12" x 12", acrylics on a Raymar panel, depicting Marzipan, a Barbie Fairytale plastic horse. "Hot to Trot" is available for $599 - inquiries may come to me. Please and thank you!
Continuing exploring some of the possibilities I discovered in the workshop earlier this week, I played with more plastic ponies today. It took me a good hour before I settled on Marzipan - particularly because her pink plastic really glowed when lit from behind, and she cast a wonderfully colorful shadow.
Also, her delicate feathery mane and tail provided an opportunity to try and paint an ethereal texture. And some intriguing edge work, too.
There's in process photos here, and a photo of the setup here. And tomorrow I hope to have a finished painting to show off!
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
