some older work from my favourites
I am still very busy, but I am posting now some of my older work, but I hope I will be able to share my work in progress once I am done with the illustrations
this painting was done a few months ago, I am experimenting with painting without a preliminary sketch... which made me focus very carefully on shapes, tones and shadows.... starting with the darks first and softening them into the whites of the paper to preserve the lights...
this is a ballerina after rehearsal, I have seen dancers in my work and watched their gruelling routine day in and day out... it amazes me that audiences have no clue of the very hard work and long hours involving the work backstage
This was taken from a reference photo of an old local woman taking a break from working in the field
