All the time I was working on this painting I couldn’t get rid of the image of a skier, hence the title.

See, it can be done – a ballet painting with no red in evidence. On reflection I think the red has a lot more impact than white or black for this type of work so I must get a new tube.
This painting was completed just in time for inclusion in the Axarquia Art groups’ exhibition in October.

The dancers legs

Back to the red colour scheme after the foray into violins. Painting a face upside down is surprisingly hard to do. After struggling for quite a while it dawned on me, turn the paper round, duh!

On the fiddle

violin 2

Another version of that wonderful instrument, the violin. There were two parts to this painting, the hand and everything else. Each took about the same time to complete!

Watercolour 50cm x 40cm.

I think I’m going to need some more red paint, I seem to have got through a lot lately. At least she’s got a new pair of black shoes this time so that saved a bit.
