This painting "Tango WITH the Shadow" is my interpretation of the sultry movement of tango. A creative form of music and movement, creating a conversation as the dancers demonstrate their strength and bold body language. Tango is a dance that makes everyone watch.
Its a beautiful painting, with strong bold movement. The base of the paintings is laid down using a palette knife, allowing for the strong impressionistic movement. For me paintings with a palette knife is like sculpting, chiseling away, reveling the the subject. I use brush work to further define the details of my painted "sculpture", using colors to play with the eye of the viewer by choosing unexpected colors next to each other.
