This little painting was completed in three different sittings and probably took me around three hours all told. I tried not to overwork the piece [leaving plenty of raw brushstrokes to prove I was involved with its creation]. Last thing I added was the business in the background of the painting---lines that hint at equipment and the back corner of the room---and that otherwise insignificant addition helps ground the subject, the dancer, to her world and makes the scene more believable. Contact me if you're interested in purchasing this painting on canvas. See you tomorrow for another one.
