Title "Ballerinas" Materials: Canvas, Oil Paint Dimensions: 62.5 cm x 60.5 cm (24.40 x 23.62)  The finished canvas is distinguished by the richness of the color palette: the artist managed to convey the texture of the dresses of the ballerinas and depicted the dancers themselves in such a way as if they were in the process of preparing for the dance. The picture is replete with soft, but rich colors, the play of light and shadow is fascinating and makes you pay special attention. Shadows have a light texture, the colors of the fabric reflect on them and gradually the colors smoothly pass into one another. The picture is saturated with movement and an unusual creative atmosphere. The painting “Ballerinas” depicts young dancers who are emotionally excited by the excitement associated with their upcoming, iconic performance. Here, the artist emphasized the exquisite grace and airiness of young ballerinas, conveyed a sense of the inner emotional state of the dancers. Each ballerina will emphasize her individual character, her own mood, and experience, which they try to control in their own way, but at the first sounds of music and entering the stage, the excitement will disappear immediately and everything will be devoted only to dance and the audience. The artist conveys the plastic beauty of the bodies of young actresses and the poetic state into which they are immersed under the influence of music and dance. The painting "Ballerinas" takes us away from everyday life, immerses us in the wonderful illusory world of the theater. Hello, our dear customer. If you buy 3 things, we will give you a 20% discount.
