the flamenco dancer…


I did this painting recently during a figure painting class. Mostly we worked with nudes but this pose was with a costumed flamenco dancer. Here’s a link to a painting by the teacher, Charles Vinh, which was up in the gallery when we were taking the class… It was good to get instruction on painting on canvas – mostly I’ve worked on paper before… or on the computer, of course!

I’ve been enjoying going occasionally to a local figure drawing class. It’s good to hone one’s hand-eye coordination and practise drawing people in various positions. I was reasonably pleased with how this one turned out and I can’t imagine anyone being offended by the content! lol

I used an ink pen and water colour pencil crayons for this 20 minute pose.
