Inspired by famous paintings - Dali

So it's Friday! That means it's time for PPF and my new series Inspired by famous paintings. :)

Would you like me to film the painting process for one of the paintings in this series? Cause I will if you want to see it. I find it nothing special so I haven't done it. :)

Some of you were wondering what I was spray painting and this is the result. I find spray paints one of the quickest ways to do a background and I love how easy the colors "blend". I painted the face with acrylics and I used Faber Castell's India Ink pens for the sticks and background details.

Inspired by Salvador Dali and The Dream.

Mixed media on wood. Size 20x30 cm (8x12 in) and 2 cm thick.

I love your take on this piece I think it worked out fantastic!!!! I would love to see a video of your process for these paintings. I learned so much from your other video and it inspired me so much!!! :0)

  12. Wow Natasha, what a great job. Dali is one of my favorites, and you did an excellent job with this.

    And yes, my Mom really did tell me never to date a man prettier than me. She's a wise and funny woman.

  16. This turned out so beautifully! To be honest, I prefer it over Dali's painting. Your face - I assume it's a woman's face - looks so much happier and way more content. I also like the soft colors and how your face pops from the background. Beautifully done!

  17. Oh I think this is just fantastic. I love your take on Salvador Dali's work. The faces just seem to want to jump out of the canvas. Great job. I like the idea of spray painting the background. Happy PPF!
