Mannequin - XIII



Tinged and Altered, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches
"If you are representing a white body let it be surrounded by ample space, because as white has no colour of its own it is tinged and altered in some degree by the colour of the objects surrounding it." - Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519)

Wonderfull perception from Leonardo in her words translated in your paintings.

Thank you, Ramires.

I hope you are doing well.

I wish I had thought of this idea. I love it.
I did once, however, in younger youth, make many small mask tape figures and hang them from the cieling with, many Christmas lights adorning the walls, in different light sequences, lol, I like what you've done much better, that was temporary, and for my amusement, but these are permanent and thought provoking

Thanks, Shea - and welcome.

I like your ephemeral approach to these little figures. Somehow it seems to go along with their Tinker-Bell-like nature - now you see her - now you don't.
