|Twirl. Watercolor on handmade paper. 2012|
Now you all know why I was pinning so many ballerina pictures on Pinterest. This was painted using a black and white picture I found on the internet as my guide. I had some trouble conveying the movement I wanted in her skirt and I think her right arm is waaaay too long but overall I am very pleased with how this turned out. It was definitely not something I am used to doing. I know a ballerina is not very original and likely to be in the company of many other dancers twirling this week but I really enjoyed doing something "scary." This was the second peice of art this week that was outside my comfort zone. See the other here.
