Glamour and Grace
The idea of starting this series came when I discovered how good I was at capturing photos of essential moments during celebrations like weddings and parties.
Until now, the largest piece I made on one single canvas is "You And The Night and the Music" which I finished in 2008. It is painted with acrylic on canvas and the size is 260 x 150 cm (102 x 59“). It illustrates twenty one people dancing in a round dance, including me (the lady wearing a green dress). More than fifty different photos composed like small pieces of puzzle and over 80 hours were necessary in order to complete my final scetch. An other period of six weeks working on the easel ended up with this wonderful art work.
