    Capoeira

    Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance. The fight is accompanied by a percussion instrument with only one string called Berimbau and drums. To the extent that the rithm of the music increases, the fight becomes intense for a great period of time until exhaustion. Enlarge the image for a better view.

    Lovely, energetic, dynamic and magnetic.... these are my words for this work.
    I like the the positions of figurs, how the author cought them up in action with his brushes. And palette reminds me of a jar full of brightcolored candies.

    As usually, outstanding!

    Dynamic work Oriane. The impasto is so well done, I almost feel you must have used stand thickened walnut oil to get the viscosity of some of these strokes! I suspect this one will take a long time to dry!!

    Vigour and strength are the words that came to my mind when I opened this, Oriane.....this is an event I would like to witness.
