12" x 9"

It's impossible for children to stand still long enough to paint them.  Took a series of photos of Rachael and worked from them.  Sometimes I work from a grid to lay out the drawing, but with this one, I put the image on the computer screen and pretended she was posing.  Like the simplicity of the ballet stance, long neck, shoulders back, determined expression.
