Dance Day

After a long week of rehearsals, today is Kiddo's big day of dance performances. This morning was the huge recital with over a hundred dancers ranging from age 2 to adult. Kiddo performed in one tap, one jazz, and three modern dance numbers. I managed hair, make-up, and costume changes. This is Kiddo's seventh year of dance so she received her third trophy and a tiara.

The sketch above is with brown colored pencil and water color pencils in my hand.book journal. We have a few hours to rest before the ballet tonight, Alice in Wonderland. It should be magical.

I am sure the ballet is as magical as your drawing :)
It's so soft and smoothly done. The shadings and shadows are excellent!

Lovely. You can just see the stories these slippers could tell.

Greetings from a fellow edim'er! Lovely piece, the colours are so soft. Definitely seems to be recital season around the traps.

sWEEt! I love the way you've blended the colours so softly.

You did a terrific job on the shoes. Wow.

My granddaughter took a class of ballet due to her gymnastics. She looked so graceful but she wants to stick with gymnastics. It's good too but not as pretty to see as ballet and she earns medals rather than tiaras.

Beautiful ballet shoes - I can almost feel the buttery soft leather.

Wow, what a busy week! Beautiful rendering of the shoes. Oh to be young again. I could use some help with my clothes, hair and makeup! :-)

There is just something about the composition and the softness of this that I just love.
