The Ballet Lesson was painted from life over numerous sessions as my daughter Eden participated in an online ballet class during lockdown here in the UK.
I applied the paint using stacatto brush marks, suggesting line and form rather than forcing them.
The result is fascinating, both soft and defined at the same time. I'm a huge fan of Seurat and his beautful light filled conte drawings on paper, they definietly inspired this approach and it's an idea I'll continue to pursue over the coming months
