For Heartsurge Exhibit E: Inertia
See the full Exhibition here! It includes an interview with me (I was lucky to be featured artist): http://heartsurge.net/releases/exhibit_e/
The woman in the painting has the pose of a ballerina because I believe it captures a sense of motion, necessary for the exhibition's theme. It was a challenging piece because I don't often paint anatomy or waves, but I learned a lot. I also wanted to depict a sense of letting go, to symbolically 'move' into a state of freedom.
I used this reference for the pose: http://terpsichore-stock.deviantart.com/art/Studio-05-211938794
