It is no secret that I love the art of ballet (exhibits a and b) so when BalletArt made its way across my computer monitor I swooned. The movement captured in these illustrations is amazing. Artist Lousine Hogtanian uses color in her drawings too but my favorites are the black and white done with graphite. The texture of this material has always appealed to me. Currently I'm scouting a location in my home for one of these beauties.
