Beautiful job, wish I could do figures. I love ballerinas and this is a beautiful pose.

You have caught the pose so well and the delicate costume too. Well done and congratulations on another well placed honourable mention. You must have had a lot of stiff competition as both these works are winners. Jen

Thanks everyone! This was one of those pictures that painted itself with me as an observer almost. Then I had to go back and make the head bigger next day as it was way too small and do a bit of refinement.
