Imaginary Dancer 1, "Freedom"

Unusually for me, this piece came almost entirely from imagination. It's not that I don't imagine stuff much - it's more that there are so many real things that I want to paint!

It was painted for a theme ("control"), but I'm not sure that it fits that theme as well as it might. So, while she may well be in control of her body, the ribbons and, perhaps, her destiny, that destiny is to dance freely - into the light. And I've done a different painting for the theme.

Here is the dancer's progress as she learnt her steps:

As you can see, quite a lot changed as I worked.
