On My Easel - oil pastel portrait sketch of a ballet dancer looking over her shoulder

4 monthes ago   |   By Hackberry Street Studio

Inspired by the ballet I saw last night, "The Firebird" by Ballet Austin, I sketched a ballerina looking back - and of course, I now have more ballet sketches from which to paint. The ballet was lovely - I've seen lots of beautiful ballets over the years but never "The Firebird", so am really thrilled! Above is a picture of The Long Center where Ballet Austin performs. The drawing is 8 x 6" on Pastel Premier board. Thanks for looking!
