Still another handcut collage from my Street Saints series, i decided to present them all in a row of posts. I must admit i am not sure if i presented any of them at Steem in the past, if so you must forgive the repost. At least the text and thoughts are new.
Little Dancer is the largest in size artwork and technically i am very happy with the work done. The colour patterns are minimal and very balanced, the aspect ratio of theme/background also good and there is a lot of motion that makes the artwork come alive. I used the sepia winterscape for the skin and a lightly patterned fabric image fro the cloths, also a lot of jewelry hanging from every place possible. My inspiration was a black and white photograph of a wounded child soldier, a really shocking image that i tried to alter with my art and create a new feeling to the viewer. I created it back at 2011 and after all these years and seeing again a war starting in my area, i can only imagine how many more innocent victims we will see.
