The Almeh

Since I didn’t end up posting an entry for my own meme ArtTwist#6 last month, and no-one else did either I have extended the prompt until the 7th of June.
The prompt, you may recall, related to the paintings of Jean-Léon Gérôme.

This then is my entry for ArtTwist#6 and for #SinfulSunday, responding in particular to the painting The Dance of the Almeh (1863).

    • That would be brilliant Tabitha. I totally dropped the ball last month with it so I’ve just decided to continue. The whole thing was supposed to finish around the end of March but I keep mucking up the dates (it’s maths!), so I may as well continue now till the UK trip in September.. xxx

  3. Dancing is so difficult to capture, and you’ve done it so well. I love the bold moves in your pictures and all your beautiful accessories!

    • Thanks Jo, much appreciated. Combining 3 loves (dance, costume and capturing the moment) is so much fun even when it’s done very impulsively, so it’s very rewarding when others appreciate it. Xx
