View Full Version : Dancing all night

I think I'm doing huge improvements in watercolor (and in anatomy). However, I still do stupid mistakes, like painting only 4 fingers on her left hand :D

Thank you for your comments and tips ;)

If you hadn't pointed it out, I probably wouldn't have even noticed!!! LOL... Your dancer looks very intent on what she's doing...

Lovely painting!!!

This is good! I think a major problem with most of us is that we nitpick ourselves to death without realizing that the viewer probably won't notice the mistake. I hadn't noticed it either.

This lady surely has style...I like her dress and the way it relates to the background, too.

I never would have noticed that a finger is missing--but her hands seem a bit small to me relative to her face....

I love the colors in this painting. And what expression - serenity in spite of that lost finger!

It looks to me like she has four fingers but her thumb is behind her hand ... so I wouldn't even question that. Overall, I like it ... a lot!!!

I wouldn`t have noticed the lost finger, but I diid think her hands looked too small.

I didn't notice the missing finger either. I like her pose. The only thing I would change is the shoulder width or neck width.

Thank you all. Glad to know her missing finger isn't too obvious :D

Sylvielu : you're right, I think the shoulder aren't proportionnal.
