Well Katie you can tell that ballet has been very much a part of your life as the poses that you do are just so perfect, the angle of the foot etc.

Intensity! Flare! A moment captured in time. You really have shown the athletic ability and stamina that she would need. You can tell she has reached a moment where all her hard work paid off and this is when a pause would happen to emphasize the dramatic moment in her work. Nicely Done.

I think Mr Ploos said it for me as well. It is a sort of water ballet to my way of seeing it. My mind says she's an air breathing human type. But she does celebrate the water.

Footnote :D: The lovely mermaid conjured a pair of feet instead of her usual tail. With feet, you can dance in both worlds as it were. . . not to mention the opportunity to accessorize and go shoe shopping. . . from ballet shoes to swim fins. The quest to fill up her wardrobe begins!

Very nice pose. Good composition, Ms Coops. I love how you 'key' your paintings color-wise. It's something of a musical analogy. You work within some parameters you chose per the painting's dictates. The relationships on the canvas work very nicely.

Good comments in this thread.
