DescriptionThis painting of ballet dancers at dress rehearsal was originally a watercolor which I digitally enhanced. It is of a ballet dress rehearsal which could be either in the studio or on the stage. There are five dancers, four of which are resting and streching in the background as the artistic director rehearses one of the ballerinas.
