Red Flamenco - original acrylic figurative

Hung up on flamenco at the moment - today I listened to Spanish gypsy music.  Lots of wailing and emotion, just like real flamenco.  Kind of a different grip on the fan, but she really did it, then deftly flipped it around without a hitch - if they only knew how difficult it is to portray - oh well, it's good practice!  My Able Assistant seems to approve - I've started showing him all my work - not just some of it.  When he looks confused, I figure the piece needs more work - but no confusion today.  Just wagging of his little stub of a tail (cocker spaniel) - always a good sign!  On 10 x 10" canvas.  Thanks for looking!
