myra's ballet

pan in the can?

The name of this artist is Stephen Pan.  His artwork has helped me to understand why I want to paint the ballet.  I love the way he renders the human figure in paint.  I love his delicate strokes of light and dark that convey the life - the warmth - the softness of her skin.   What I would like to paint is the sweetness, the loveliness,  the cuteness of the human figure - especially the ballerina in her tutu.  I've done some paintings where I have tried to paint cute - delicate - soft . . . I would say that I have gone from point a to point b - will I make it to z?  we shall see!
