Warming Up

It's easy to see why single source lighting is one of the most effective forms of lighting when creating a painting, especially figurative work. I was at a ballet rehearsal when this young lady struck a pose that struck me in return. Just the fact that she could DO this was amazing enough! In all, the dramatic lighting and uniqueness of the pose made for an interesting painting.

Outstanding pastel work, Tom! It has the finesse and depth of realistic oil painting, which is very hard to achieve with such a rough medium. Also, it's quite a difficult pose, and you handled it masterfully, with subtlety and grace. Congratulations!
