Performing arts especially music and ballet have always been favourite subjects of mine and I find myself returning to them again and again. In This pastel painting I have sought to capture the between worlds atmosphere of a full costume rehearsal. The ballerinas in their swan costumes are resting during rehearsals as the lighting and colours they cast create that other worldly feel of a full performance while their relaxed poses are those of backstage. This pastel painting will be shipped well protected in flat in a box and will include a document of authenticity signed by the artist.
