Illustration Friday: Layer

The more layers in your tutu, the better you are at ballet. (This is what I've been told by some very young and very opinionated ballerinas.)

The way the little girl in the blue dress looks down at her own outfit is so full of feeling. How you do it with such simple strokes is amazing.
