More Tango Fever - original oil figurative painting by Connie Chadwell


More tango - this one is oil on Gessobord, 12 x 9", which like the last post, is a little bigger than I usually do for tango dancers. I was especially happy with the foreshortening of the leg. I did this painting from the recent charcoal drawing, "Tango Sketch". They're not exactly alike, because I decided to add a little flourish, but definitely similar.
Thanks for stopping by!

I always love the passion in your dancers. Nice one, Connie.

Really nice gesture and movement, as always. The fabrics are great...the fluidity of the dress, the 'white' of the shirt, and for some reason I'm in love with the trousers.
