It is the largest image, I've done, at 2600 pixels tall. Was even larger, but the puter, balked at working. I've done some ballet before, as it's a fave subject. I've done a Degas or two. I'm still trying for the right one, and once thot of dressing her in blue. I put it in the Figure forum.

Thankyou Mr/Ms. Coin. Well, at least you get a fresh start on the awards and medels. I had several, and they removed them for some PC BS, on their new format.

She's beautiful, a lovely painting Fugitive:) I see a hint of white around her head, presumably from a layer, but since this is a whip I'm sure you'll fix that, lol!!

Fixed it last nite, thanks. Yes, layers are involved, as the BG is separate from the dancer.

Greg this is lovely, very Degas, I love the soft pink tones that give it the feel of a very young girl!!
Well done :clap:

Beautiful work, I like the look of consentration while she works to get that slipper on just right

Elvira, yes, but not too young. The guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland, used to photograph nude yougn girls, apparently, with their parents permission. Pretty wild for these times.
Thanks Jean.
