Shake It by donnaquinn Shake It by donnaquinn
Rio is a feast for the senses, especially during Carnival. Even the non-human wildlife like to get in on the action.
Painted for the "Rare" Anthro Calendar, which has a festival theme for 2014. Orders now open at www.anthrocalendar.com ($25 + shipping). The first 50 orders get a free greeting card and bookmarks (I also designed one of the bookmarks which will be uploaded here soon).

Painted in acrylic, a bit bigger than A3 in size.

I wish people did not think that Carnaval occurs all the time in Rio, it's only one week..but people thinks that is everyday..
Great piece by the way, I love it so much, especially the birds expressions! The colors and the composition are very well done

This is amazing. I think this is the best rendition of fireworks that I've ever seen in traditional media. Not surprising, coming from you! :D The birdies are so cute in their festive regalia and with their beaky smiles, and the scenery is delicious because you've shown the beauty of natural and manmade structures at the same time. I really dig the hangy mossy stuff (technical term) on the branches, and the lively sparkle of the city windows in the distance. Gotta love the backlighting on the foreground, too.

Always a pleasure seeing your work, Donna. :hug: Keep it up!
