As part of my ballet series I've been painting small miniatures of feet positions to help me finish larger works. I enjoyed these paintings so much I decided to create a set of paintings focusing solely on the wonderful shapes and angles the ballerina can create using her feet. To show the texture of the ballet shoes I painted them on MDF boards, the smooth service throwing my ever brush stroke into relief.
I wanted the works to show the elegance of dance but also the strength and control required. However beautiful these shoes are to keep them on her feet the ribbon they are tightly tied around her angles.
