'padding it with blue!' by myra anderson...

Ballerina practice on the ipad by Myra Anderson
Practice Sketch
Hello and I hope that everyone is doing well! You know, there are so many wonderful artists of the ballet as well as so many beautiful and inspiring works of the ballet.  With that being said, I am still working on my single color idea this week.
Also, I was thinking of a time where it's possible I might paint a ballerina on a large canvas. So I thought that I would do some practice sketches in my sketchbook and some 'ipadding' on my ipad.  I thought that I would practice colors and textures and even some finger painting on the ipad before any brush hits any canvas (or watercolor pad). 
Below is the work of artist Pavel Filin.  What delicate beauty in the touches of blue!

Speaking of blue (blue green?) I don't know what he is doing in the studio of the lovely Izumi Kogahara but what's going on in there sure looks exciting! (I later found out and it was awesome!)
If you know me...and I think you know that I love studio pics! What I didn't know was that they made paint in bottles like this! I want!!!!!! This is what she was working on and he was setting things up for a video! Happy PPF!

Lovely sketch and painting! I really like the single color ballerina! I enjoyed looking at your studio photos that were shared. I never knew paint came in that large of a size either! Congrats on your featured work at PPF! Hope you have an awesome week!
