This is really lovely Debs, great composition

This has so much atmosphere, Debs - the ballet dancers up in their garret learning their trade. The monochrome with the touches of red compliments the scene wonderfully and the dancers are beautifully graceful and very well drawn as well.

Very nicely drawn and painted figures, its a very complicated image really with the figures against the window. I would have thought the figures would have been much darker against the light of the window but that would have made them hard to see, tricky.

Super composition - well done Debs

works well this! smashing!

Thanks so much, Petra,Thea,Stephen Michael and James, wasn't to sure about this one, never seems to work out exactly as you want it to - does it? ps Stephen you're right about the figures being darker against the light - chickened out!!

Lovely painting Debs. I like the fact that you haven't gone very dark in the places where you could have because I think that would've detracted from the graceful / gentle feel to the painting

Paul's got a good point there, I suppose as artists we don't have to be too factual.

Great image, I think this painting connects on so many levels, love it . Well done

Sorry Debs, could have sworn I'd left a comment here. Must have had an intellectual intermission LOL Lovely composition/design and the touch of red is a masterstroke.

beautiful delicate feel to this painting,just right for this subject, lovely.

Thanks again all for your very much appreciated comments!!

Atmosphere, design, technique - all there in spades, Debs! Super!

Hang on Studio Wall

Trying for atmosphere with this, enjoyed the design side of things [as usual] must practise technique though! lol
