Spent a couple of hours today sketching for my Dance painting. I worked on heads and on the pose for the main dancer. I will probably give all three dancers long hair because it is easier to show motion with long hair.
I also decided to put the main dancer in a sundress – once again so the swinging skirt will help show the swirl and twirl of her dance. I’m going to have her hold a scarf or shawl flying like a flag.
I did a second head. It is for the leaping dancer. Her nose is much too cute and pert and her ponytail will be flipping behind her.
I am beginning to feel good because I am making some progress – slowly. I will continue to plug away.
I am doing the sketches with markers because it is challenging to capture emotion and movement with this tool. If I can make you feel their joy I will have succeeded.
Besides the blue is COLTS BLUE! Go Colts!
