Degas study: switching medium

42 cm x 29 cm acrylic on paper. It was fun studying this famous Degas pastel in acrylics. One gets to glean a whole lot of info from studying master works, and switching media (e.g. rendering a charcoal in watercolor) adds to the thrill.

Thanks so much for looking. Please view at full size.
