Preparing To Dance II - oil painting slideshow

     Preparing To Dance- slideshow    oil on linen     8"x10"
I finally got around to creating a little slideshow of "Preparing To Dance". I worked from dark to light in order not to be dazzled by the reds and create them in values that are too light. I think that helped me keep the balance of the composition together. Hope this is helpful, I welcome questions if you have them. This one's sold, but you can see more of my daily paintings and other works on
my website.


  1. Thank you Mary for sharing this slideshow...I've watched it over and over...

  2. Wonderful slide show. It bears watching several times for sure. Amazing whites and sense of light. I agree, thank you for sharing.

  3. The slideshow is wonderful: it's like a tutorial and I too watched it many times. Thanks! The final painting is gorgeous.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
