Acrylic painting....

I love dancers. I think they are so beautiful and graceful. Confession: I have always wished I had taken up dancing long ago. Well, since I am not a dancer I have to strive for the next best thing: painting a dancer. This was a pretty tough painting for me, although it appears to be so simple. I think it was difficult because I tried using acrylics entirely. I like the idea of painting the under layers in acrylic and finishing with oil, but I just stuck with the acrylics because I liked how it was turning out. Next time I think I will try to finish with oil- I just really like the texture of oils. Anyhow, here's the painting- oh, it's bigger than any other one also. It is 24 X 24, so HUGE for me!
