A dance memory of La Gavotte. I remember clearly the rich gold satin costume, black grosgrain ribbon trim and scratchy tulle. I usually sketch in red but used gold acrylic to sketch before applying gold oils, mica and oil stick. I wanted the shimmering memory to permeate.
Princess Florine, the bluebird from Sleeping Beauty Ballet. Fleet of foot, light dancing in this role reflected in the soft, pale palette and use of palette knife and cold wax add to the light delicacy of this piece.
