Started this one June 1st, but I've only just gotten around to photographing it. (Sorry about the lack of posts lately, I've been a bit busy...) Anyway, this one is about 26" by 17" and about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way done.

Today I had the opportunity to sketch some of the dancers of the Maryland Youth Ballet as they worked. They're absolutely amazing.

They're also wonderful models. Several of the dancers stayed after class to pose for me so that I could do some more time consuming pen and ink sketches.

This was definitely the biggest challenge I've ever had. Trying to sketch the dancers as they went through their routines was incredibly difficult, but that's what I liked about it. Even sketching them as they worked at the bar was challenging - but very, very fun, and very cool. I hope to go back to MYB again soon, and in the future I may do a series of paintings of ballerinas...
