Mayte in Black

I have just completed this commission of a watercolour of studies of the flamenco dancer Mayte Beltran. My clients had seen a small watercolour I had painted of Mayte last year wearing a red outfit and shawl when she performed at the feria in Las Negras (see posts below). Mayte herself bought this painting. The clients, however wanted a larger painting, 50cm x 30cm and with the dancer wearing black. Fortunately I had some photos we took of Mayte wearing a black dress and this colourful shawl during a street performance in Las Negras about three years ago so I was able to refer to these for her costume in the painting.

The medium is watercolour

The image size is 500mm x 300mm.
The original painting has been SOLD.

Hiedra

I love belly dancing and used to perform occasionally in public myself and I still dance for my own pleasure. I was delighted when Hiedra, a belly dancer of Berber origins who lives in southern Spain, came to my village, Las Negras, to give a performance a week ago. Naturally I could not resist the opportunity to paint her.

Odette

January 31, 2015

OdeAfter painting only watercolours during the last couple of months, I needed a change and wanted to return to figurative art and the medium of pastel. I particularly enjoy drawing ballet dancers and my favourite ballet is Swan Lake. This painting is of Odette, the Swan Queen. I think the medium of pastel lends itself to this subject and enhances the romanticism.

Irina in acrylics

I recently sold a pastel painting of the ballet dancer, Irina – http://margaretmerrypaintings.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/irina/ so, as I love ballet and painting dancers, I thought I would paint her again. This time I used acrylics which I have not tried with this subject before. My previous pastel study was much admired so I hope you will like this too.
