I really like this Jeannette, has a lovely feel to it

Jeanette this is stunning! I so love the delicate floaty feel to the dancers dresses and the ambient lighting effects, skin tones. Wow. I thank you for the kind comments too :-)

Fenomenal! Even better than the others, if that was possible. Incredible lights, hair, etc.

Thank you, Carole, Jane and Nora for your very kind comments. I do like to capture the light in my paintings. Degas is a Master at that - the colours he uses are amazing. Just attempting to paint in his fashion I am learning so much. Thank you once again from excellent artists like yourselves.

Jeannette this is lovely - I'll echo what everone else says - colours & light - magical - so very . . . Degas - wonderful.

I must have missed this. Another great one Jeannette. You got me interested in Degas that I had to learn more about him. He does have great work and I think you have captured his Ballerina art work very well. Thanks for your comments on Belfry. Just a suggestion, when entering a new painting on this site could you create a new portofolio, because that is why i missed this one, it did not appear with the most recent ones received. Thanks.

Well done Jeannette. I agree with what everyone else has said. I think this is the best so far. These watermixable oils really seem to work well for you. Great stuff, lets see more. Perhaps you could EMail me when you post (if you don't mind?) I seem to miss so much. Thanks.

This is beautiful Jeanette, I have yet to try the degas in oil, I am pleased my pastels of degas inspired you to try them.

Hi Jeannette, I have missed this one.... so many pictures go by. I DO LOVE this painting so very well in tune with Degas, you got the softness and the colours are very good !

Forgotten to say : I do hope that your exhibition went well.

Always admired Degas` art. I admire yours also.

Sorry I had overlooked this one leaving aside the long focal arm a well done piece.

It is so nice to see this one again! great painting.

yep ...your whole gallery is amazing ...keep up the great work

Just having a browsw through your lovely paintings. So many I haven't seen before. I love the reflected light and softness of this one. All your 'Degas' paintings are beautiful.

My fourth oil painting a medium I am beginning to like and get to grips with. Yet another Degas Impression. Boxed square format canvas watermixable oil. Degas is certainly teaching me a lot!
