plus degas #1

I am several paintings into my desired goal - to eventually paint faces - and I will begin to post them this week. This is part of a beautiful Degas painting.  We know that Degas painted beautiful faces.  He could also bring drama to the ballerina's face in his sketches and paintings with just a few simple strokes or a minimum of detail.  Tomorrow I will post a fun painting I did - just borrowing the colors Degas used in this painting.
