Break Away Painting by chibipandora Break Away Painting by chibipandora
:no: I put a LOT of work into this, but as is the way of experiments I'm not a big fan of how this painting came out.

Done for "Break Away" for the 100 theme challenge. I always thought the swan dives off the really tall buildings had this feeling of letting go. So when I was trying to picture breaking away that's what came to mind.

I got the motion effect from a mix of blending the colors in the wash and putting on more layers and then just pushing the paint with the side of my finger and the back of my paintbrush. It gives your finger the look of a really bad bruise. I had to wash it off in order for my brother to believe it wasn't real. :giggle:

Thanks! I also really appreciate your feedback on my other one, but I think I'll get rid of it and move this one out of scraps since its unanimously preferred. I was wondering though, what is curtain dipping? :confused:

Curtain dripping (may have spelled it wrong), or like drapes and a window...the window being the picture, and the blood would cover the top and be running down the sides.

chibipandora Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
Ahhhh That is a fantastic idea. And if I kept it around I would have at least added the blood for sure.

Wow, this is very different from your usual stuff. I'm favouriting this version instead of the photoshopped version, because even though the colours there are more eye-catching and maybe suit the subject better, I think this one seems more... honest, and true to you, in its use of bright primary colours.
