|Ballerina #27 / oil on linen panel / 20x16|
A few final small tweaks and she is finished (highlights on lips and softened edges here and there). As promised here is her work in progress from beginning to end:
The back ground was painted with a mixture of burnt sienna and ultramarine blue in just the right amounts to create this gorgeous grey. I also added some raw sienna here and there to warm the grey.
The final painting with softer edges and some additional highlights. Actually the color is more true to the previous photo but the lighting today was different in my studio and this is the best photo I could get.
|And a close up of the face.|
Happy Spring and Happy Easter to everyone!
