Llama’s Time Period Challenge: Ancient Greece
I couldn’t think of anything last week for this and this week didn’t get much better. My sister finally suggested I try and recreate one of the myths. We went with Icarus – the boy who made wings and flew too close to the sun so his wings melted and he fell into the sea and drowned.
I made a quick doodle design in paint to get a small map if you like for how I wanted it to work. It didn’t quite work the way I wanted it to but after three attempts trying sponging, tape, striping brush I was forced to give up.
The sun kept going blobby and the shimmers didn’t blend with the orangey coral. The only bit I am really happy with this is the little dude on my sisters thumb. Yes, the poor dear had to sit through about 2 hours of repainting torture and frustration.
Colours used: George Love Rat, Ciate Sand Dune and W7 Sheer Blue and Konad Special Polish Black. This is so not my week for nail designs. Do I get points for effort?
Please check out all of the amazing designs that all the other artists have done. I’m going to go cry into my polish stash and find some chocolate for my long suffering sister.
