I am always dredging through Art History, especially Early Renaissance, or the turn of the century Impressionism seeking inspiration.  A look at Degas led me to treat my dressing and undressing models as a source for what I called "The Ballerina Series".  They suggest dancers.  I have the model assume similar poses as certain Degas'.

BALLERINAS

Degas and his love of the female body has always been an inspiration  in particular the ballerinas.  Models assume similar poses with a modern touch - stockings and high heels.
