March challenge at ARTastic
is to get inspired by a painting by Barbara Hanrahan. The criteria is to
use a quote or a saying on your page. I chose a quote by Albert Einstein saying
“Play is the highest form of research”. I thought it was perfect with this
photo of DD and her friend with mud all over them. I guess they have done some research... ;-)
I used some grey watercolour
on the background and splashed on acrylic paint in different colours to enhance
the mud-theme. It’s been a while since I used that technique and it was SO fun! I also added some acrylic paint in neon yellow to match one of the reflective vests on the photo. Here are two close-ups showing the techniques:
I hope you feel inspired
and decides to play along! You’ll find the rest of the DT’s awesome inspiration
here. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a nice day!
