It is likely that Arches was painted at Madame Rambert's practice room at the Mercury Theatre on Notting Hill, close to Flint's studio. Flint painted a number of watercolours of ballerinas practicing their steps, but at first did not find it easy to capture their movements; 'I usually fight shy of ballet subjects because ballet has such a fanatical following and the artist who is not just right gets short thrift. I had very good ballet dancers as models and I think I drew them reasonably accurately; but the criticisms I got! One 'balletomane' inspected my studies very earnestly; said they were incorrect but marked a few as passable. I was quite meek - whose dog was I that I should bark at Authority? So I said 'Let's look at Degas' and produced the Phaidon book. 'Ah, Degas!' exclaimed my inspector. We looked at the wonderful works, I with enjoyment, he in silence. After a long time he burst out with 'But they're all WRONG!' So I was consoled... Madame Rambert was so kind in letting me sketch in her class-room.' (Quoted in Arnold Palmer, More Than Shadows: A Biography of Sir William Russell Flint P.R.W.S., R.A., 1943, p. 26)
