Edgar Degas

Degas is wonderful with skin tones… and motion… and “snap shot” compositions. I’ve a heavy volume of Degas, but this painting is not in color in it. The composition is dramatic and the emotion nearly palpable. The modeling of the face is exquisite.

As for my own painting…I have only two weeks left! But life and work won’t leave me alone to paint! Laundry, dishes, cooking, work etc…

Ah well. Here’s another Degas.
