Artist's description:

This is an illustration of a ballet dancer performing Swan Lake. She is illustrated using black ink over a lightly acrylic painted and primed canvas sheet.

I've tried to compliment the elegance and perfection of form by limiting the use of shadow but making it strong and absolute to truly define the dancers silhouette. I was considering presenting the illustration on a dark background and spotlit but eventually decided to draw her on a warm and inviting colour. It allowed the illustration to breathe and not be constricted while complimenting the simplicity and minimal quality of the subject.
