Another one from a few years ago

But this one shows the results of many many hours of study of the human figure. The hill in the background is the hill I see from the back of my house, Knockfierna. I thought it would be fun to explore the notion of the dancers finished with their dance and rubbing their sore feet and shoulders. I have a particular fondness for female models with rather full figures, simply because of the way their shape captures the light on their skin - they're beautiful. This particular painting is now in the Netherlands.

I love Matisse's work, it's beautiful. His original painting La Danse is one of my all-time favourites.
