Dancer

21 Jul

This is another of the dancer sketches created at the Ballet on the Drive last Saturday. As I created more and more sketches a style evolved that seemed to be a natural way for me. First I’d ‘draw’ loose shapes in colour as I used the brush in a linear way. Then I’d add a few defining lines with a watercolour pencil to the broad, watercolour strokes. A duet of lines emerged and seemed to be an effective technique for containing the energy of the dancer without losing the gestural quality that gives the sketch life.
