The feather boa - finished



I have now finished my painting "The Feather boa". It will be the first in the serie: Showgirls.

The painting took a turn, as I found the space in front of the woman was too empty. I decided to add some deco/background abstracts, and painted this kind of 70' looking stuff. When adding this and the boa, the whole feeling of my painting shifted from a naked-woman painting to a showgirl painting. The woman got golden briefs and the background looks like an abstraction of a scene.

I think her expression is one of awaiting - proberbly to go on stage and dance :)

Funny how even figurative paintings can take a turn :)
