Ready to Hang

Suspended is a piece from my series on Dancers. The concept is to display the struggle a dancer has as they use their bodies to display graceful poses. Through thin washes, I manifested each dancers emotion into gradations of color and composition.

I work with both oil and watercolor and use very similar applications with both mediums. The codependency of color placement and its intensity play a vital role in presenting the current thoughts and emotions of the figures. I choose to place vibrant strokes of color around the eyes of the figures to exaggerate the emotion behind the eyes. With these portraiture's I strive to present a still display of emotion. Instead of simply displaying a realistic copy of the figure, I choose to exaggerate and add color that is not there to subtly enhance the display of emotion.
