Ballet shoe with bow, 6x6, 7/22/09 SOLD

A few years ago I did a series of ballet shoe paintings. Thought I'd try one as a daily. The shoes are light pink but there is a lot of grey in there too. John Howard Sanden has a Pro Mix Color System that he developed for painting portraits and figures. I bought the little box of ten colors a few years ago and did not like using them for skin tones. But when I was doing the ballet shoes the colors were perfect. At least I can use them for something.
