Pastels, pastel pencils and Nupastels on 16” x 20” gessoed panel. I prepare my panels from hardboard, sealing then brushing on gritty gesso. Figure is from an on line photo ref, background I created from referencing “The Floor Scrapers”

Well done. We have another member here who has painted this same dancer. :)
Thank you all for your comments and support. Much appreciated, especially for this piece as it is still emotionally close.
I miss doing pastel... thanks for explaining the prep. on the panel.... so lovely. Her skin tones are interesting
Thank you. I’m not sure how convincing that she has on thin leotards.

Well... it's either that or yellow legs. :);)
