WIP - Market Dancer - Finished!
This is a new commissioned centaur painting...a belly dancing centaur! She is a professional working the market with her two young apprentices to help collect coins from her appreciative audience. This will be 11x14 and loosely based on a ancient greece as the setting. I will update this same post as new work is completed on this, so, all parts of this WIP will be in one place.
The first 3 sketches are approximately 3x4" and were to work out a basic layout. I used color pens to define the differant parts just to make them easier to see...the color here is not indicative of what the final painting will be.
This is a full sized drawing working with the chosen elements from the initial sketches.
Here is the final drawing transfered onto a toned Art & Enns gessoed panel. We decided to go a bit larger so it would have a bit more breathing space, so, now this is 12x16.
