Dressing for Odile - original oil pastel figurative sketch

I'm sort of fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes of beautiful opera, ballet and music productions - so much preparation and training, along with the talent.  This 7 x 5" sketch is possibly the beginning of an investigation of these moments.  I'm so happy with the woman doing the fitting - very little is said - a favorite look for me.  I used sand colored Ampersand Pastelbord along with Sennelier oil pastels.  Thanks for stopping by!
