Blue Sandals

This pose caught my eye right away. If the beautiful figure were to be leaning too much one way or another, the eye would immediately identify the imbalance and be disturbed by it. The weight of the upper torso is supported by a straight right arm to the chair, and the remaining weight falls onto the planted foot (yes, complicated with a stiletto). The figure is the focus, so all the other elements are intentionally subdued and blurred. Classic but contemporary painting depicting the grace of the human figure.
