Skelly Dance at Bougival, wip

A start on another skelly painting, this an homage to Renoir’s Dance at Bougival. I love this painting so it’s a pleasure to copy it. Look at that swooshy pink dress! And the red hat! With fruit! Love it.

The initial sketch was charcoal and then I made a quick grid and went over it with a sangquine pastel pencil. I wasn’t too far off except for the placement of her head.

Blocking in colors. I love the guy’s shoes. So fancy.

More pink, really going after the suit colors.

Getting serious about the skull on the left, now. More to come!
