Ballerina in Watercolor


Contributing Member
Trying new paper that I got a part of a monthly surprise pack from Etsy. This is a 10 x 7 watercolor on Baohong Academy 140 CP, a cotton paper that performs very well. This is my first attempt at a ballerina, and have rarely done any figure painting.

Thanks - the colors look a bit washed out on my screen vs. the painting.
Great perspective here - love this one, Joy! Good for you to try something so different. Lovely work.
This is beautiful, and amazing for a first or early attempt at figure painting.
CaliAnn, this was done as part of a challenge for another forum, so I can take no credit for the photo's perspective! It intrigued me, also.
This is terrific Joy! Love the light and I love how you painted the black in the dress.
Excellent! I would have never known that you didn't often do figurative. This is splendid! ♥️
