This is a small drawing that I completed over just 2 evenings (approximately 9 hours) and one which I really enjoyed doing. I found the ballet shoes so beautiful when I photographed them to draw from that I couldn't wait to start.
This is another coloured pencil piece - I have really enjoyed using this medium recently and love the challenge of improving my technique with each piece. I am planning on doing more painting soon too but coloured pencil work is definitely something I will continue to work on.
Here are the pics of 'After The Dance' coming to life - as usual lately, with my drawing being done late in the evening they are decidedly dodgy phone pics - but they give you a little bit of an insight into how I built up the piece. (Those of you who follow my Facebook page may also know that the odd glass of wine also played a role in the development of this drawing ;) Well it was the weekend...)
