Black and White Flamenco - original ink and stick drawing of a dancer

I did this drawing on Borden & Riley Paris paper for pens, 9 x 12", using a balsa wood very, very thin dowel - so thin that it could almost not be called a dowel, with both permanent and non-permanent inks.  It's so important to work quickly doing this even though it's far from perfect, because I seem to lose the momentum if I slow down.  I did a lot of scribbling plus some brushwork, too.  Thanks so much for looking!

Love the top hand in this one.. It's all there in just a few lines.

The simple lines can be very expressive, Connie!

That makes me happy, Jeff. I love it when I think I'm being economical with my strokes - Thank you!
