I have been working on this painting for months! I just keep forgetting about it and then pulling it out every once in awhile to work on it- I'd really love to finish it soon so I'm posting it as a WIP in here for motivation to finish the darn thing!

It's undone (obviously) and already hanging in my bedroom lol

Let me know what you guys think! Smiley

(the original image I based this off of is from a coloring book, alterations have been made however)



Motivate me please! Cheesy

Thanks!

Throw on some bellydance music and I think that will do it!

I don't think it's obvious that it's a WIP at all!  Very colorful and purdies.

Is it on canvas board or stretched canvas?

Thanks guys!!

It's on stretched canvas! Smiley

I've had quite a few people tell me it would look fine if I didn't add anymore details. Everyone has actually suggested I only detail the clothes and jewelry and leave the faces and skin solid colored. I'm going to see how that looks when I finish the clothes

I agree, just add some detail to the clothes and jewelry and then walk away. Let the painting inspire you....

It is just beautiful, I am a bellydancer and this is just sooo beautiful....

Aww thanks so much everyone!!! I will try to get a better picture of it up tomorrow- photobucket really resized it so it lost some quality and detail Sad

It's pretty large actually- it's on a very long rectangular canvas and I'd guess the dimensions but I am mathmatically challenged and I'm sure I'd be WAY off lol!

You sew don't you?
What about making yourself some belly dancing garb and throwing on all the accessories you own. Then sit down and see if you want to do more to this (awesome) painting!
Or, just watch Rachel Brice. She's adorable, and somehow get's me inspired.

Thanks for the idea and inspiration!! I think I will add a little more detail, but after watching the videos (I watched a few! lol), I think I want to add some metallics to their accessories Cheesy

I know it might sound odd, but I think you could add some 3 dimensional elements to the clothing. I do like it as it is, it's just the collage maker in me coming out Wink
