Ann Miller

Tap dancer Ann Miller, secondary star in many MGM musicals.

I've been doing so much precise detailed work lately that I needed to take some time to splash around with my watercolours. I could do whatever I liked, and it didn't matter what happened – I quite like the result, overall.

I added some glitter to the jewellery after I scanned. You can see a photo of the result over on my blog.

Size: A bit under A4
Materials: Winsor & Newton watercolours with Series 7 and Series 7 Miniature brushes, on a random piece of watercolour paper. I used a drinking straw to blow the paint around.
Reference: From doctormacro.com
Time Taken: 5 – 6 hours.

Enjoy! =D

Very nice. Ann's predecessor and another great tap dancer Eleanor Powell. Although Eleanor usually got the lead.

Yes, they often get some of the best lines. And any film with Ann Miller in is sure to have at least one fabulous tap routine. =)
