Painting #86 "Ballet Shoes"


One day a few months ago I was at my grands dance studio and saw a pair of toe shoes hanging on the wall so I snapped a pix for a future painting.  The future is today.
  I used D. Smith's new colors called, "Pearlescent Shimmer" and 
"Iridescent Aztec Gold" for the slippers.  First time I have used these colors and they really take some getting used to.  The shoes didn't turn out the way I envisioned but I am leaving well enough alone.  Their shimmer does not show up on the scan.
I do like the background.

As soon I saw this painting and read the subject, the first thing came to my mind - Degas! I love the pastel look of this watercolor.
Thanks,
Irina
