Salsa Sketch - original charcoal figural sketch by Connie Chadwell

This sketch is for a painting I hope to do.  I find salsa hard to figure out, but I attended a salsa dance show a month or so ago and am thinking maybe, just maybe, I'm learning a little bit about it.  The salsa drawing was done with General's Primo drawing pencil on Bristol board and is about 11 x 13".  I love these new Primo pencils - they are so smooth and easy to work with - they practically draw the sketch by themselves.  Well, a slight exaggeration.
Thanks for stopping by!

good sketch all on it's own. Maybe more than just an exercise before the painting.

Wow, you draw fast. If you paint that fast watch out you don't splatter the walls. I did that once.

A nice double figure sketch. Do you watch dancing with the stars?

Thank you, Anthony. I'm glad you think it has merit as a drawing. I sorta do, too. I'm really a drawer - is that a word? Anyway, I love drawing. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Bill - Really, I didn't draw this one very fast. This was done from a teeny little gesture I did at the show - very difficult in the dark. I know what you mean about paint splatters on the walls LOL. That used to be a problem, then I just started painting thicker. Sometimes I do watch Dancing with the Stars, but I get so caught up in it, that I forget to do any drawings. Thanks so much for dropping by!
