My daughter performed i this costume for her Spring Ballet Recital last year. It was fascinating to see her showsuch control and grace, usually dance class is in my mind as a coordination of pick up and drop off times. I was so surprised to see her up on stage with the other students showing such an improvement in her skill level, so self possessed.
Painting this piece was a novel challenge, with the subtlety of the transparent Tutu and the bold red checked pattern.
