I continued to work on my painting of a dancer. I added additional orange glazes to the background. I continued to model the dancer’s figure and tutu to create a 3 dimensional form. I added shadows and minimal reflections. I also added the mid tone, light and highlights. I painted the cast shadows on the floor. My brushstrokes on the skin of the dancer are apparent. I must consider whether the brush work on the skin is too much. I also need to put a gloss medium over the entire painting.
