The Art of the Dance

"At the ballet, you really feel like you're in the presence of something outside the rest of your life. Higher than the rest of your life." -  Robert Caro

"It is essential to do the same subject over again, ten times, a hundred times. Nothing in art must seen to be chance, not even movement." -  Edgar Degas

Here are some detail shots of my latest large-scale figurative piece, "The Prima Ballerina," 36x36, oil on linen.  I hope to have my model, Emma back, for many more paintings - she is absolutely elegant!

If you ever want to learn how to paint white, do a high-key painting like this! It will blow your mind! :-)
