Tango Moment – canvas art
Oil on canvas 40″ x 30″
Size of original: 40″x 30″ Other canvas art sizes available! A couple dancing the Argentinian Tango on a beach dance floor, a surreal depiction of the now. I know paintings of couples dancing on the beach have been done before but I like dancing, sky and seascapes so it’s my turn. 😀 .
THE INSPIRATION AND IDEA
I’d just finished priming another canvas, which incidentally, my son makes for me. Just about to scrunch up the old newspaper that had been on the work surface to catch any splashes when I noticed a rather faded and pixelated 5″ inch high photo of a couple in this pose. There was little detail and the faces were overlapped and in shadow but I just liked the shape so sketched it.
It was fun visualising the faces and how the light would fall on the subjects forms. I know I have so much still to learn but if I may be so immodest as to use such a description for any of my canvas art I think this is one of my most beautiful paintings. Even though it’s a few months since I painted it it still has such a strong effect on me each time I enter the room where it’s hanging. It seems to glow and emanate an energy of its own. The couple sinking into each others eyes oblivious to events around them. That moment…. bliss!
I hope to add more to this theme in the future.
Hope you like this canvas art enough to like and share with your friends.
