But I Like the Photograph

Dance Party (c)2011 Dora Sislian Themelis
8x12 Watercolor on Arches paper

Well, it's finished. Or let's just say I'm finished with this. I had to stop. If I had continued I am not sure what kind of mess I would have gotten myself into. There was nothing else to do at this point.

Shall I tell you what I like, or what I don't like? How about this: I like the photograph I took of the original scene. The suggestion from you dear readers to add lights or banners was a huge help. I decided to make it look like an outdoor party and the lights strung over head were just what this needed. Not to mention the fact that in Greece they decorate exactly like this.

I'm not so sure what else to say about it. But if you have something to offer go ahead and let me have it. Good, bad, doesn't matter. Tell me your opinion. I'm an adult. I can take it.


  1. I love it! It looks like they are having alot of fun! Whoo-hoo, party time! Connie

  2. You're a doll Connie. Thanks!

  3. Its lovely. Reminds me just of an outdoor party!
    Might soften the tash of the man nearest the musician with the footstool, that is drawing my eye a little.
    have a great weekend, Dora xx
