Mikhail Baryshnikov – the color of dance

Mikhail Baryshnikov – the color of dance.  For this painting I used a 16 x 20 inch canvas, acrylic paint and matte gel.  The painting was inspired from a photograph of Mikhail Baryshnikov performing one of his signature artistic ballet jumps.  I wanted the painting to capture the fluid movement and absolute perfection of his body placement in this ballet jump.  Mikhail Baryshnikov, “Misha”,  will forever be known as one of the greatest ballet dancers in history.

Enjoy!
