Swan Lake

Jan 9, 2009


This illustration comes from the ballet story of Swan Lake. In the story the beautiful maiden Odette is trapped in a swan form during the day and transforms into a human at dusk. She falls in love with the prince but must transform back to a swan at dawn every day, unless the spell can be broken and she can be freed.

My sister Angela is a ballerina and I used pictures of her dancing for my sketches. I love how ballet can tell a story through movement, drama and music.
