This is a 6″ x 8″ oil on canvas board that was started sometime last year. It is still unfinished and you can see how slow the development is from the first representation to the second when further work was done on it. It is the depiction of a young girl at ballet class and, as is the custom, she is doing her preparation at the bar. The face of the young girl needs further definition and there are other points that need more work. The painting is very small so the detailing is very fine and rather tedious.
