Today is day four in The Digit-al Dozen's Art week and I have some nails Picasso nails to share with you. I really wanted to create some nail art inspired by Picasso and browsed through a gallery of his works. I had book marked about 5 different paintings and it took some time, but I finally settled on The Acrobat.
Here is the painting that these nails were inspired by,
Interesting huh? I thought the painting was very interesting, from what I read he wanted to convey movement but define it within the box of the painting and the stark colours.
These were relatively simple to do, I started with a base of Wet n Wild On a Trip and then did saran wrap with Tip Top Nails Crushed Grape. I then added a coat of top coat for a nice smooth nail art surface. I then took Sally Hansen Ion and a nail art brush from Winstonia Store and created the shapes of the figure. I decided to span him across two nails to give it a little more room and make him even more acrobat like. Then using the smallest brush from Winstonia Store I outlined the figure in black.
I really like some of Picasso's work and he is such a household name that I knew I needed to create something inspired by him! I actually really like how this came out too. My acrobat isn't an exact replica, but I like him anyway :) As always this week, here is my pinable image!
What do you think of my recreation of Picasso's Acrobat? Do you like any of his work?
