Leap

IF:Leap
The theme for IF and IMT were the same so I couldn't decide where to post each picture, so I posted them together. I hope you like at least one of them.
Inspire Me Thursday:Leap This is the smallest painting I ever attempted. It measures 3x5.

There's a progression here. Thursday os the leap to overcome fear, and Friday is the leap of celebration. Leaping in joy.

These are both great. I love the sky in the second one, the sense of the great outdoors but the first one particularly appeals, there's something about the energy in the figures and i always like the simplicity of silhouettes

Great piece for IF, I really like the leaping poses which are well enhanced by your use of limited colours.

Suzy said...

I love the first one too! Very earthy colors and a lot of energy. I really feel the leaping about.

I like them both too, but the top one is my favorite. I love orange and it has a kind of mystical feel to it. Thanks!

Nice painting.

I like both of them. I am favoring the top one. It feels like the iPod commercials only with a more natural, organic quality and feeling. I like the variety of poses of your main figure. Good work.

I like them both. I think the top one is my favourite because there is so much action and drama in it. The way youve done siloutte against that rich background works really well and infuses it with vibrancy.
