Series of 3 dance paintings: Eclectic Dancer, Dance Finesse and Dance Seclusion

I love painting a series, a sequence and here is a series of 3 dance paintings. Note that each of the dancer’s motion carefully flows with the diversely varied backgrounds. All are 91cm x 61cm and each are moody, atmospheric, emotional, expressive, dramatic and passionate, but to a different extent. All are full of hidden meaning, telling a different story and with a hint of sensuality. Produced in collaboration with Ballet Met, Will Shively and the beautiful ballerina is Kristen Stevens. The order you prefer them in is perhaps a reflection of your own mood? Do you have a favourite?

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
