Windswept Dancer

Title: Windswept Dancer
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I drew out the dancer with my brush in warm ocher colors, scumbling on darks and lights. Then I came back with a knife in hand and began pulls of cooler colors and some warm indian yellows for movement, finishing with heavier whites and brush work details on her face.
I love dance. I love to dance and love to watch it. I danced ballet growing up and all through college and miss it. I need to find a class. I bought tickets to the Nutcracker again to give my girls for Christmas. It's kind of a tradition and beautiful.
