This looks like a pastel painting as the dark ground shows through the lighter paint on top. I got some wonderful shots of this dance recital a few years ago. They ended the show in their loveliest costumes and so I was able to take many good photos that captured their mood, the costumes, the dramatic theatrical setting.

The following year, this group ended the show just in colorful t-shirts and dance shorts so I was LUCKY to have captured some of the beauty and magic in this first session.
