Les Sylphides painting

40"x36" oil on canvas, 2019

Les Sylphides painting from Ballerinas series was inspired by romantic ballets' Sylphides of the 19th century. While developing the image I reflected on the ethereal and on same time ephemeral nature of dance and dancing body. The connotation of the image together with my personal experience of colors' relationship during the process of creation determined how I made the color decisions. Dark mystic fantasies and stage lighting gives me absolute freedom in the color-decisions making in that series.
