Oil on Raymar Panel
Anyone who knows me knows I do love a tutu. Anyone who knows me knows that if you bring an adorable young girl into my home I will entice her with my collection of tutus and try my hardest...in a kind way...to get her to pose for me. This little girl was so adorable and gave me the most beautiful poses...soulful...thoughtful poses. I just fell in love! And anyone who knows me knows that I will use this opportunity to play with paint and see where I can take the tutu.
I started with some really dark greens, blues and reds blocking in...and then lightened up areas with some lighter shades of the same...finally mixing in some cool white for the highlights. I think it looks like it has been danced in all day long and the little ballerina is tired.
