Dancing in the rain

I started this page by laying down blue and yellow acrylic paint, letting them blend in some areas. I then drew the figure with a black water soluble pencil and coloured it with Portfolio Pastels. I then added the white background pattern using a stencil and added touches of the orange pastel. To finish I used a Tim Holtz stamp to add the quote.

I totally agree with you about Pink Floyd.... P Mc was the only bit I didn't like.... other than that brilliant!!!!

This one brought a huge smile on my face Jacky. The figure is pure in its simplicity and very creative colored.
When you take a closer look at your background as well I can "only" give you a huge applause !!
A very beautiful Artpiece !!
