This week’s art journal inspiration: Black Swan. What an intense movie. Natalie Portman did such a phenomenal job and Barbara Hershey was the perfect overbearing mother. Natalie’s character, Nina, was probably 20 or so and her mother would still undress her – even taking her earrings out!
The dancers in the movie were dancing Swan Lake. It is a love story of the white swan who loves a prince but he falls for the black swan so comes the black and white halves of the page with feathers and rhinestones that feel like dance costumes.
Slightly different angle on the black half. I over-exposed a little bit to, hopefully, show a little more of the texture and the feather. The black feather with the rhinestone is my favorite part.
