"Limelight" an Art Muse Contest Finalist

We are thrilled to once again have a painting chosen as a finalist in the Master Class category of the Art Muse Contest! This time it is "Limelight" selected by September contest juror artist Mark Lague.

"This is a very charming painting. It has a nice value pattern, brought on by a skillful use of alternation. Even though it's black and white, colour can be felt in the shadows. The uplighting is reminiscent of Degas."  -- Mark Lague

The Art Muse Contest is a relatively new online competition, with a different judge each month. Entries are divided into 3 categories according to the artist's experience: Master Class, Emerging Artist, and Budding Artist.
