Light Dancer (Second Half)

The sweetness of this single dancer sparked the motivation for “Light Dancer.” I will still fuss with her face without delineating too much, and I will add ribbons streaming from her shoulders. If you compare to the previous day, you will see that I pushed back the strong architecture of the window framing, because it was competing with the lines of her arms.

8×8″ oil paint on canvas panel; contact the artist for purchase information.
