This is my second painting of the great Ballerina Darcey Bussell. I saw her three times live, and she made moves I've never seen another human do. One of the most amazing things I've ever seen was Darcey as Odette in Swan Lake. In a passage where Bussell stood motionless before the Prince, she just barely shimmered, almost imperceptibly. I've never seen anyone move like that. This painting was done after I saw a TV special of Darcey Bussell dancing. I did pen sketches of Darcey doing pirouettes in a ballet I don't remember, and I just had to do this painting of her. Darcey Bussell was one of the first ballet paintings I did, and this one is after painting ballerinas for six years. I really like the motion of the brush strokes, especially around the feet and the rest of the figure.
