I really love this pose and hope I will be able to do it justice! I have this image on acrylic canvas paper now and am planning on trying it in acrylics first. Sorry that the photo isn’t the greatest, but I didn’t want it to be traced too darkly so the pencil on the canvas paper doesn’t show up real well.
I found this picture in some type of ballet brochure I received in the mail years ago and saved. I traced it and enlarged it several sizes. Her outfit appears very sheer which I am hoping to be able to convey.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 🙂
