Illustration Friday Topic - Talent

I haven’t painted since Monday! My paying job always gets in the way. Ha! I think I’ve been paint-deprived, too, because this painting took me 17 minutes!

Illustration Friday’s topic this week is talent. One talent that I always wished I had was to be able to dance like a ballerina. They are so graceful and beautiful and yet, at the same time, so powerful! Amazing. I chose this ballerina due to her difficult angles. The photograph is taken from above. A photograph doesn’t always translate well to a painting. Your eye can't argue with a photograph because, well, it’s real. That’s why sometimes a painting, taken from a photo can seem off. I loved the challenge of this one.
