Ballet dancer

Boy, I keep forgetting how challenging watercolors can be.  I often find photographs of ballet dancers on Pinterest with interesting compositions and good lighting.  I really liked the lines expressed by this principal dancer and felt inspired to try painting it with watercolors.  I think I was able to preserve some of the key lines of the dancer but had trouble keeping some of the major shapes as I struggled to control the watercolors.  I think my next painting will be with oils.
