A sketch started this piece as it does many and it was so interesting I wanted to get on to it straight away. I added the leg as I thought it would be a bit too compact but then I had to alter the proportions as it looked a bit skinny in the front. The flow of the form suggests a dancer and the leaning forward also gives movement and balance to the piece.
It sort of has echoes back to the work I did last year for the �New Zealand� exhibition but it extends beyond that is bigger than most of my pieces. This is the second piece I have painted white and overall I am happy with it.
