Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter A quick study of a ballerina

Killing two birds with one stone...testing out a pastel paper and a quick figure study...

This is a still from a YT video of a ballet performance and the quality (of the video) is really low as it was recorded many years ago I think...it was mostly washed out and dark but I'm trying to see 'colours' within...

You have caught the pose well. We can feel the force on the foot and the tensions in the arms with those nice shapes. The subtle, pearly colours give it a dream-like quality. Really nice.

Re: A quick study of a ballerina

that's a double reason for drawing Constance!
I like the expression on the face.

Nice ! I like the evanescence of the figure. It's almost as if she was about to vanish into the air.

Nice and I love the glow against the darker background.
