Acrobat after Picasso

Acrobat body painting by Danny SetiawanA tribute to Pablo Picasso.
This is an interesting piece to do one a body since it has 2 parts that are very different: The acrobatic girl on ball is very fluid and dynamic while the big guy sitting on the box is very static and heavy.

The challenge as a body panting is how to make the two work with the body lines.

This pose works perfectly because the we get both the fluid movement on the left and the static figure set up with a straight line created by the right edge of the model’s torso. Her hand naturally pointing at the man’s face leading our eye to the image then to her face connects the painted piece with the model.
