ARTastic May challenge

The Challenge at ARTastic this month:

We are working with this amazing artwork by John Maitland called Seven Girls Running.

CRITERIA – GIRLS ONLY

I love this painting and was inspired by the colours as well as the feel of the girls running. Although she is skating there is a feeling of the movement  in the left hand photo of my granddaughter. I really enjoyed creating the background paper and used acrylic paints which I then sprayed over with white mist and a mask to soften the colour a bit.
