A next session of my work in progress based on my drawing ‘Nude 17-06-15‘. I experimented with color schemes and decided to add purples and blues to the mix because I found the orange and green to look a little bit to soggy.

Besides that does the contrast in cool and warm colors create more contrast between the ballerina and the horse. I looked at quite some pictures of ballerinas in stage lights and pastels of Edgar Degas. I guess any stage color setting can be as good as any other so the pinks and blues will not be bothersome and alieniation will do justice to the surrealistic theme. Still a lot of work to do.
