I am Konstantina Tsihlas and this is my entry for the second pre-challenge competition (top 18 ntna 2014). We were asked to pick our favorite visual artist and use their style and create our own design on a single hand.This is a hand-painting challenge.
I chose Donna Dewberry. She is known for her one stroke painting. She usually paints flowers with one stroke. I really love animals and I really like the way Elena Ballarini draws animals so i wanted to apply Dewberry’s one stroke technique on animals.
