Yoga Series

Well, I am very excited to share the first finished piece of my yoga series!  As you saw from my last post, I layered on oranges, yellows and reds at first, then outlined the figure in a beautiful burgundy.  This elegant pose called for a swirl of energy where I added purple first, complimenting all of the orange.  Deciding to fill the figure more than just outlining it, I added pink, purple, burgundy, yellow, gold, violet, and more oranges.  I am super happy with how it came out and love the flow of enerby through the piece.  It is 9x12 and Nupastel on Colourfix paper.  I'm also sharing with you the second yoga pose in my series called "reverse warrior".  For this I'm layering blues, greens, and yellows.  I just began working on the figure and will keep you posted :)


  1. looks fantastic, thanks for sharing with us.

  2. I think these are beautiful! I love the human figure in artwork, especially dynamic like this. It looks like the people are a part of the scenery, which I think encompasses the whole idea of yoga; being one with nature! Lovely!

  3. Thanks for the wonderful comments! Jeannette... that is exactly what I was going for! I love how yoga is about flowing energy and the harmony between internal and external environments. Now all I have to do is work on names for them :)
