The challenge of capturing the human figure in motion, or a descriptive expression on a distinctive face is a challenge that is well worth the effort. I try as much as possible to paint from live models, but occasionally I use photographs of dancers from my days as the Artistic Director of a regional ballet company. I also enjoy painting children and the following paintings are the best of my efforts.
