A sketch of a ballet dancer # 1

this is the first of a series of watercolour sketches of ballet dancers, I feel it is a good idea to do sets of paintings, as I am focused right now on faces and characters of old men, who I see when I am downtown, and the graceful movements and shapes of the dancers I meet at the theatre

11 1/2" by 8" watercolour on canson watercolour paper
