An exciting thing about Orchestra Musicians is that it was revisited by Edgar Degas two years after he had already finished and given it to a friend as a gift. He asked to have it back when he added pieces of fabric to the top and bottom part of the work and cut strips from both laterals. This turned the artwork from a horizontal to a vertical layout and gave the piece an entirely new look and atmosphere. He also worked on what became some of the essential characteristics of the artwork.
The first noticeable feature is that the painting is divided in the middle horizontally. On the bottom part, we have some of the musicians, placed at the pit. We can see three only three of them, but it is possible to observe the top of the violin arcs and a clarinet in front of them. The musicians are on the foreground and painted with dark and saturated tones, enhancing the idea of depth between the bottom part and the ballerinas on the background. The musician on the left has brown hair, the one in the middle has black hair, and the musician on the right has white hair circling the top of his head and a luscious beard. Their outfits are pitch black contrasting with the white collar of the shirts and the details on their skin, faces and ears are portrayed in beige and pink. As they are part of the foreground message, their lines are more defined and present a large amount of details, as well as the instruments.
In front of them, on the background and top of their heads, ballerinas are presenting their number. There is one ballerina on the left, probably doing a solo. She stands out from the others, not only for being physically separated but also because she is lightened from the bottom and occupies nearly half the stage on her own. She has a frost white dress shaded in tones of blue. The skirt on her dress is puffy and voluminous. On the corset, she has green and apricot pink flowery details. This ornament circles her waits and runs down the skirt of her dress. She also has a pink flower on her brown hair.
The other ballerinas are dressed in the same garments, but we can see fewer details on their skin and dresses as they are placed way on the background, right in front of the landscape painted on the back of the stage. The scene is painted like a forest, in tones of green and brown.

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself,
use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service,
meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
