Invitation to Dance
Invitation to Dance – Arianni Martin. 102cm x 76cm. Produced in cooperation with Ron Brewer and Arianni.

Original oil painting on a stretched 102cm x 76cm canvas. Produced in cooperation with Ron Brewer and Arianni Martin (Thanks Ron and Arianni)

Painted entirely with a knife. A high level of contrast is provided and the colours made extremely rich, bold and lustrous, thus creating a very contemporary feel overall.

It’s a large, very dramatic, passionate, emotive, moody and atmospheric figurative dance painting that would not look out of place as a feature in a lounge, study, office, music room, conservatory, bedroom, hall, landing or similar room and be a focal point to be proud of.

This painting will be supplied framed in a heavy, high quality Arqadia frame. Contact myself for more information about this beautiful work of art, or if you would like to purchase it. Obviously, the quality of the original painting and prints is much better than displayed here, though if you wish to make a closer inspection, please let me know of any specific area you’re interested in and I’ll e mail a higher resolution image to you.

Here’s what a wide variety of artists thought of it on Deviant Art, Fine Art America and Red Bubble where you can also purchase unsigned prints, posters, postcards, mugs, t shirts, coasters, stickers and jigsaws of my artwork.

And if you like this painting, PLEASE share it with your friends

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
