30 Paintings in 30 Days, day 5

I’ve decided what I’m doing is a self-induced painting workshop, where I’m the student and the teacher. The down side is there isn’t the stimuli from instructor and other students, the upside is I have to learn to teach myself. Being that painting is a solitary pursuit, learning to teach myself more effectively is a very handy skill to have.

This painting, which is available on my Daily Paintworks site, is from a photo I took while being fortunate enough to photograph our Nevada Ballet. I found the time before the practice was the most interesting. Some dancers stretched, while others gathered in groups to chat. The girl in the painting was concentrating heavily on fixing the strap on her point shoe.

The palette I chose was Yellow Ochre, Cad. Red Deep, and Ivory Black.
