good job aaasap;
as a compositioon it could have more background connection but it does block out fairly well to the canvas as is too.

for aasp, a thousand thankyous!
She and her male partner are a beautiful duo, in their form.......... perfection.
Faceless as they are, their bodies the instrument of their work, their personalities submissive to the art of movement

amazing painting.Do you have models for reference or find photos,Id be interested in knowing your process and how you pick a subject before you start painting?

i like the criss crossed
arms legs hands feet
and taking the face out
of it is a great touch
that allows the focal point
to shift to where the action is

Boy you really get those hands and feet don't you? This and the other dancer are both incredible. Their bodies are art in and of themselves, and your paintings make them dance even when they are at rest. Beautiful!

This is wonderful!I always enjoyed watching the dancers work and rest. I worked for a while in a dance theater as an accompanist(piano) to the dancers.
Great painting!Love it!

Thank you Julia. I too love dancers. I could paint them for ever!
Aurora, hands and feet are the painter's nightmare but they are worth fighting over. Our extremities after all! And so expressive.
Thank you all for your encouraging comments.
Fmoore I try to work only from models I know. I can't work satisfactorily from photographs I haven't taken because they are so flat.
I pick the subject by working with the model until it "works" and the photos I take become very much like sketching. Then I usually work from many different photos taken sometimes in different sittings and settings.
