Day 27 Inspired by an artwork…

Hello! This would have to be the prompt I was looking forward to the most, I really enjoy doing artwork inspired manis and have done quite a few of them. I’ll link at the end. Today I chose this expressionist painting by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch called “The Scream”. I saw this painting in Oslo a few years ago and read that Munch heard a scream and saw the sky turn red.

I started by outlining the major shapes in a dirty pink colour and then filled in the colours from there. Working from the background (sky) to the foreground (bridge). As you would with a painting on canvas, putting one plane over the next to help create the illusion of distance.

I have painted this with only nail polish and have left it without a top coat to give the brushstrokes more texture. I’ve had to stretch the image out a bit to fit it across four nails and I find it hard to get my fingers to line up neatly! If you are interested here are some of my other artwork manis, Megan DuncansonMirza Zupljanin, Magritte, Goth Mona Lisa, Abigail Larson, Pollack, Monet, Warhol twice, Degas, Kahlo, Van Gogh, Picasso, Seurat and Michelangelo. I am most proud of Dali’s “Persistence of Memory” and Leonardo’s “Mona Lisa” which nearly sent me crossed eyed! Also here is one of my own paintings.
