Well Katie yet another wonderful ballet painting, your intimate knowledge of ballet and pose is the thing that makes your work so perfect.

You have such an understanding of the figure. Especially the figure in motion. Good job!

You're "stretching out" a bit here! Love her lace effect.

It's another masterpiece of Yours on dance. You're a new Degas (but far more charming). You inspired me to select dance as my next subject too ...;):D

Very nice pose. Sort of like interlocking links without the interlocking. . . maybe more that they're overlapping. Makes me want to watch this dance. Pity the picture doesn't move. I think I mean that in 2 ways. As opposed to certain dance shots that look like they are moving, this pair look posed, as if holding still while you work this up, and that's got to be tough on the models considering how long it takes to paint. ;)

I like it. The forms are nice, detail is nice as well. Costumes are bold and differentiated one from the other. She is in a vertical balance, he in a diagonal stretch. It seems like this is a couple trying to come to terms with their differences. No blood spilled, and that's a kindness, though she is lifting her toes out of harms way. . . Or. . .

It could be that the dance theme is "opposites attract"?

Anyway, it's a swell painting and up to your standards, Ms Coops. :cool:

Thanks Semd for you kind comments.:)
Cesare I really appreciate your comments and I am now blushing also I did see your ballet too hehehe:)
Thanks Sandy, in my minds eye I was trying to get the feeling of the bullfight into this one but into a ballet.:)
Dear Mr Akey, you are always so kind with your praise and you really take time to tell me what you see. I really appreciate all you kind words which often lead to another painting:)
