Masters Study – Edgar Degas, a crop from Dancers Resting

“There ain’t nothing from the outside can lick any of us.”
– Margaret Mitchell

Masters Study – Edgar Degas, a crop from  Dancers Resting
2.5″ x 3.5″ Van Gogh H2Oils on 140# Watercolor paper

Here’s a link to the original Degas painting.  If you haven’t tried them, Van Gogh H2Oils are water soluble  oil paints.  They are fun to play with.   I remember spending a lot of time on that white dress.  There are a lot of colors in it, along with texture and shadow.  Fun!!  :)

About Margaret Mitchell

Margaret Mitchell wrote just one book, the immensely successful Civil War novel, Gone With the Wind, which she wrote while convalescing with a broken ankle, basing it on tales her relatives had told her. She then put the book away until a publisher asked if she had ever written a novel. After giving him the manuscript, she got cold feet and asked for it back, but he’d already begun reading. The book still sells more than 200,000 copies a year. She was born in Atlanta in 1900 and died in 1949.
