Degas’s “Dancers in Pink”
I have finally redone one of my favorite paintings of Degas’s ballerinas. I have only done this one in pastels which is in a previous post. So…here it is in watercolors.
I have a small print of this painting. I used tracing paper and my lightboard to trace the main outlines for accurate proportions. Then I transferred it to 300 lb. watercolor paper. The heavier the paper, the better my paintings usually turn out.
Then I used my Prismacolor watercolor pencils and other watercolor paints to render my copy of this painting.
I had to wait until I came to town today to post this, because I couldn’t get the picture uploaded from my phone!! Very frustrating living out in the sticks sometimes.
I am going to be talking with my doctor today about the highs and lows I have been experiencing in the last few months, so hopefully he can figure something out.
I want to thank those of you who have been praying for me. I really appreciate it. Hopefully I will finish my article this week!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 😊
