I love Master Degas's paintings of ballerinas'. His original of this work was a charcoal sketch; I opted to add my own take on color. I love that her foot is pointed out as if she's ready to step gracefully into first position. :) I love her long toe shoes; it allows them to dance like angels but makes them walk like ducks, that has always amazed me. I did this first with an acrylic underpainting, then Oils, then finished with Pastels. I The Masters I pay homage to are all in the public domain; I'm not infringing upon any copyright.I attempt to learn all I can from each Master and add my own spin on the work. Please enjoy this, I did it with a great deal of love and respect~
