Three smaller paintings of contemporary ballet, the dancers body constrained within the canvas board. Each movement throws a slightly different shade of blue onto the background beneath hear, the tone mirroring the poses emotions.
I painted these works partly to suss out possible larger paintings. I like them on their own merit, though, and see them as a nice sequence of simple and direct works of art. They are, in many ways, more honest and direct than the larger and more refined paintings.
Each Painting is 15 x 15 cms, mounted in 20 x 20cm acid free mount card (made to fit 8x8 inch frame).
