I loved the creaminess of the paint so much that I could see why a person would stick to that one paint (see last post). But I will indeed try a different brand soon. Also, I want to see how the painting looks when it is dry before I post it.

Hi Helen! I took ballet classes years ago because I loved the beauty of ballerinas gliding and leaping across the room. Right now, drawing the ballet is one of the 'inner rooms of my happy place' (good for my mind lol!)
I was wondering how I could expand from drawing one figure (above) to two figures on a larger canvas. I thought that I would use the notebook method above to help me imagine the size and composition. I have also been working on some interior sketches somewhat like this older sketch from one of my sketchbooks. But does the photo above tell you where we are going next?
I love this painting by Luis Morris from portrait artist of the year because it portrays the other side of the 'ballerina's story'. The beautiful ballerina was resting her mind and her weary feet as she listened to the music being featured in her new ballet performance.
