Dressed to Kill Original oil painting 6" X 6"
During this month's challenge, I have been combining Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" with Daily Paintworks challenges. I have to say, a lot of these have been very difficult fits for subjects I enjoy painting. So, I have been seeking unique ways to depict them...ways that are appealing to me and keep me inspired.
This painting is inspired by "The Skulls and Skeletons" challenge posted on Oct. 19, 3014 by Christine E. S. Code. I thought it would be fun to dress my skeleton and pose her smoking. She is "Dressed to Kill" and enjoying the party! If I had painted a larger piece, she would hold a margarita in her other hand!
I enjoyed playing with color in her skull! Again, there is a bit of glare in the dark wet paint.
