12×16 original pastel on sanded paper, framed, $345 plus shipping

I am new to the ballerina scene.  All pastel artists have to try them out in honor of Edgar Degas.  Wow.  He painted grace and movement in volume.  I need to paint in volume.  The road to mastery of a subject is volume. This painting was a moment at rest.  I decided to abstract the background so that the focus is the ballerina, with simple yet intense colors.
