Ballerina Series

Ballerina Series

 The Ballerina Series began with a drawing group in Coeur d’Alene, where we had the opportunity to draw a model by the name of Stephanie. She had mentioned that she was available for modeling and that she had ballet experience and costumes. That led to spending a few sessions with Stephanie sketching and taking reference photos. I've done a number of Stephanie that you will see in the Oil Painting section of the web site and you can see some of the photos as well as the paintings below.
