Ballet Girls II

Another ballet painting. Couldn't resist that ballet hair! More photos from the weekend, below.
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

We took a Dora the Explorer hike with maps, a backpack, a book...we had to bring pieces of dried eucalyptus leaves to the log where the bug lives--food for the mama bug; one of our Dora Explorer goals. This lead to our nature art--our mini Andy Goldsworthy.

On this day my granddaughter gave not all of her stuffed animals a ride, but about...well a whole laundry basket full. Note the different animals in the basket. The black cat is an allies cat, if you are interested, my sister is making them again! Check out her Etsy shop. Looks like they're on sale!

Excellent, close-up composition on this one, Susan!

There are a ton of colors in the blonde girl's hair. I don't know how you did it, but you did!

I love the glossy white highlights in the auburn girl's hair too!

Great little painting. Detailed and loose at the same time.

Just great!
