Very dramatic works. I do however, feel that the breasts (particularly in the first painting) seem overly large but perhaps that is the way you wanted it. In my humble opinion , they detract from the beautiful sinuous movement of the dancer.

They are both very dramatic pieces and full of energy.
I think the second works better than the first - though I agree with Chammi about her anatomical 'assets'!! A lot of ladies would want breast-reduction ops!! :lol:

However, with (I think) one light source in the first painting, you need to re-think how that light would hit her face and body. With back-lighting most of her front would be in shadow.

Thank you for all your comments,
The main thing was to show the drama and energy, but doing so in a minimalist way, but with as much facial detail as I could get away with,
Light source is is from more than one direction,
