Ballet Recital

8x16 Acrylic on Canvas
I painted this of my beautiful niece last night at Wine and Paint With Carole Foret. I had a wonderful time and met some fun ladies! Some of whom I hope were encouraged to begin painting! The image I used for this painting is from my niece's ballet recital in Beijing last year. The yellow was a challenge for me - especially since I only brought yellow cad light (lemony color). I had to mix some darker yellows for the darks in the costume - but I like how the red looks and I think it helps the background. I still need to finish her hands, but that will have to wait until next week! This is my last post until Monday! Off to NOLA!

Bonnie, enjoyed your being there last night at Wine & Paint--it was so good to be painting together again. (and with Michelle too!) This turned out so beautifully. You should be proud.
Have a fantastic time in the Big Easy!
