Picasso challenge: Acrobat

I'm going through the pictures out of order. Today is day 3 for me, and I'm using the 4th painting, The Acrobat, as inspiration.

The outfit (worn to work):
Stone skinnies (Classiques Entier, City Weave Ankle Pants); purple and stone micro houndstooth cowl neck blouse (made by me); stone long cardi (Nic & Zoe); taupe cross-strap flats (Naot, Lan); mauve packable coat (Mycra-Pac); taupe shoulder bag (Aunts & Uncles).

I was going for the color scheme here, and I tried a pose to mimic the picture (aren't I a sport? ha ha!).

    Lovely colours. Texturally soft too, like the painting.

    Great to see some movement in your version of The Acrobat Firecracker. The muted colours, texture and long lines of your outfit fit the bill so well. Very well done!

    Great interpretation!  I love the soft colors you used.  I also enjoyed seeing your shoes in taupe and comparing them to Shannon's black ones.

    Beautiful. This one really calls for a soft and simple interpretation. I love the colour palette on you. And thanks for throwing shapes :)

    So beautiful Sharan. I love those pants especially. So you weren't up to bending backwards like the pose??? Lol :)

    And great shoes!

    Oh the colors are perfect and I love the soft shapes in the shoes and collar.

    This colour palette is lovely on you, and it echoes the painting beautifully.  I love the acrobatic pose, too.

    HAH. Beautifully executed - with acrobatic pose to boot. Killer. Mauve is STUNNING on you, Sharan.
