Audrey's Toe Shoes

 
10"X8"
Oil on Linen

I pushed and pulled the values and color in this painting.  The toe shoes proved to be a formidable challenge.  It is important for me to push through the desire to finish a painting and patiently wait until it begins to take on a life of its own.  I once had a professor who said that you know when a painting is done when it  breaths on its own.

Toute comme la danseuse vous avez donné tout de vous-même et j'aime ces couleurs qui dansent et flirtent avec notre regard...
Gros bisous

Thank you Martine and Jerry. The toe shoes were really difficult to paint. The fabric was loose and wavy and it was too much detail. So I had to simplify.
