Tango Impromptu - original figurative sketch by Connie Chadwell

This is a peek at a couple who did a little spur of the moment tango - I guess it just struck their fancy and I must say, I was delighted it did!  Since I didn't have art supplies with me, except for my tiny sketchbook and pen, there was a lot of scribbling going on, mostly gestures to remind me of this great little free show.
Back in my studio,  I decided to replicate the gestural quality with Caran d'Ache Neoart water-soluble oil pastels.  The sketch is about 10 1/2 x 6 1/2" on Rapidograph paper (which is probably not made any longer, but it's paper to use with pens).
I did a number of these, maybe there'll be more to post in coming days.  Thanks so much for stopping by

Hi Connie,
Your choice of media enhances the liveliness of the subject. Very nice. Love the Jive dancers and Salsa dancers (both sketch and painting) also. Yes, gardening beckons, but redirected focus is a good thing, I think. As you say, we return to art. Do you sell anything from your blog now, or just the galleries?
