Lovely use of light and color. She looks so graceful! Reply goodmoments on June 14, 2012 at 11:34 am beautiful! Reply Mandy van Goeije on June 14, 2012 at 8:44 am Thank you! Reply Mandy van Goeije on June 14, 2012 at 8:44 am Thank you! This week I learned that the attraction people feel for slightly exagerated and yet recognizable human form is purely natural (BBC documentary "How Art Made the World") and immediatly thought of my own work…of how I exaggerate and elongate my figures to an almost abstract level…apparently it's not just my artistic taste, but a deeper, innate tendency we humans seem to have. If you're interested, it's the first episode of the above mentioned documentary series.

I long how she's elongated. Great color, love the background.
