"Skaters", 4x6 watercolor

I had great seats at the National Final Figure Skating Competition that was held in Spokane, WA.
It was a glamorous and exciting show. Young atheletes challenging each other with stellar performances.
This level of skating exhibits the elegance and charm that is perhaps comparable to ballet.
I can imagine doing paintings such as these studies in large oils and scrolls of fine linen.
The skaters use their bodies to interpret music. I distill that visual impression to a gesture of color made of paint.
