Folk Dancer - original charcoal figurative drawing




I was watching a group of dancers from Central America and this enthusiastic young lady was in front of me - she put her soul into her dancing and it was wonderful to watch.  I did a quick gesture drawing and continued with this drawing even though she only held this position briefly.  I was forced to remember the pose even though the model had moved on - a great drawing exercise.  And not too bad for helping my memory, either.   It's 8 x 6" on charcoal paper.  Thanks for stopping by!




Thank you for visiting my blog!

You must be quick-draw with the charcoal! This is wonderful.

You've really caught the energy and gravity, as well as the dancer's concentration. Nice!
