top Ballerina

I digitally manipulated three of my ballerina photographs to create a ghosted movement image, printed this onto Archers watercolour paper then created the background and image with watercolour pencils and watercolour. To soften and blend the composition I used light acrylic glaze coates and finished the artwork with a coat of matte acrylic varnish.
