Illustrations inspired by ballet

Instagram is a great place for inspiration. Recently, I've been following Hyshil Sander (@hyshil), an illustrator and designer who's been working for the Dutch National Opera and Ballet (nationaleoperaballet). The photos are gorgeous!

So much pink tulle! 

Suitably inspired; between commissions I've been trying out some ballerina inspired sketches, creating pink watercolour textures, and made this illustration.
