Jesus.. very effective composition in this painting. I also like the 'attitude' of the figures.

Nice one, Jesus..
Take care..

Indeed, very nice composition. I like how you've handled the soft light.

Thank you Frank, i am happy that you like it, since this is new to me, but I like to enter in new themes all the time, I think that is the fun of painting.

Thank you Erik, the composition was with back lit, so I had to soft the light all around the characters

Hola Jesus, veo que estás en un periodo muy creativo,este tema es interesante, pues esos ambientes con esas tónicas tan cálidas son muy agradables de trabajar y te permite colocar figuras bien estáticas o en movimiento a ver como sigue el tema.
Un saludo y que todo vaya bien.

were they based on a real picture?

it looks like the boy is taller, even though he's actually not by much.

Magnífico, tiene una fuerza impresionante, los colores, la posición de la figuras... todo.

Un abrazo.

Vicente, gracias por comentar, puede que si que este en un periodo creativo, aunque no se me habia ocurrido, aunque a este tema del ballet ya le tenia ganas, el proximo cuadro de este tema sera con figuras en movimiento, ya veremos que tal sale.Un Saludo y feliz navidad

Love the anatomical structure in this painting. The warm palette also gives a good feel to the ballet theme your going for. I apologize for not visiting your site in a while, seems like your doing beautiful work as always! Excited to see more of this ballet series. Saludos!
