My homage to Degas

In the center, the Little Dancer, is a sculpture by Edgar Degas I saw at the Louvre.
I did this still life. Painting? Nope. At this National Gallery site you create your own still life. There are apples, oranges, books, vases, and everything you need for a still life. It's very interesting because you can change light, shadow and add what you want. I loved the mirror showing the front image of the dancer instead of the back. It is a Magritte touch I guess.
There are other activities at the site The Art Zone and children can have fun.

but it takes time to arrange everything, find the right light,... it's exhaustive... it took me hours and I had to try it over again many times.
Art is not easy...
lol

Hi Ana, I actually saw this post on Saturday night and meant to comment then but I ended up going to the National Gallery site and played with it for almost an hour! That's pretty cool and here is where I get to say "nice painting!"

LOL
I thought about telling you to go playing with it but thought it would be an insult.
hehe
Yes, isn't it a great painting? And I started taking lessons only two months ago...
lol
