Ballerina painting dance art – Cloudbusting


Ballerina Painting. Dance art of ballet and movement with a flowing dress by artist Kent Paulette. This original acrylic painting on canvas is of a woman dancing.  The ballerina’s dance is graceful and elegant.  She is wearing a magenta and pink dress.  The title of this ballet art is Cloudbusting.

Paulette describes his process for this painting of a ballerina, “The big earthquake happened as I was working on this painting in my studio! I could feel the painting shaking but it took me a bit to figure out what was happening.”

“I mixed all the colors in this ballet dance painting by starting with just the 3 primary colors and white. I mix them together at different ratios along with magic creek water.  I painted her dress using magenta paint mixed with creek water. Then on top of that, I painted white mixed with creek water on the transparent parts of her dress where there’s just a single layer of fabric.”

Artist Kent Paulette painted this original dance art in August 2020.  The title Cloudbusting was inspired by the song by Kate Bush.  This ballet painting featuring a ballerina’s elegance was also inspired by the New York Dance Project, a.k.a. the NYC Dance Project.
