Step by Step Competition

Ballerina, Figure in the Four Colors
Step by Step Competition, July-Sept. 2023

7 (final artwork).jpeg

This time we will take up, perhaps, the most beautiful subject for fine art - a ballerina. And as usual, we will decompose this very difficult project into simple steps. Moreover, we will limit ourselves to only four colors. What is even more interesting - the jury includes artists who rightfully occupy leading positions in the world of figure paitning.

 

I am grateful to everyone who took part in the competition. 

My congratulations to all participants, finalists, and, of course, the winners!
