Alla Prima Ballerina, pastel 18x24 . This is a life portrait done at the Art Students Guild of young girl Danielle.  This is a kitty tutu.  Later that year she went on to star as the young girl in their troupe's annual Nutcracker production.  I thought the pale blue paper needed to be a more muted color.  Still working on it - don't like the background blotchiness so far.
