So, I met these ethereal, playful figures who dived and floated through sun-soaked clouds - I called them “air dancers”. Some ideas need to germinate before they can be brought to life. This is the continuation of my adventure with the air dancers, as I sketch initial ideas for the painting.
I looked around. Yes, there they were - the air dancers. Lithe, long-limbed figures dived in and out of the clouds as though swimming, flying, and dancing all at the same time. Long strands of white trailed and tangled around them as they played. Maybe I could do that too.
This is a behind-the-scenes video of my series of artworks featuring Elena, a gorgeous belly dancer. Discover the romance that inspired her love of dance.
This series was inspired by Elena. When she told me about Hürrem, her inspiration for this series, I have to admit to bouncing around with excitement.
So far in our Hürrem series, our heroine as gone from slave to Suleiman’s favourite consort, to the mother of his children, to his wife. Let's continue!
This piece is inspired by a scene from Magnificent Century but Elena most definitely makes this piece her own. This is Elena and her eyes full of mischief.
