Those were great selections, Harry! Thank you.

The emotion and color of the flamenco dancer is what attracted me this week.

This is oil on a 7x5 hardboard. I first applied black gesso for a painting surface. Love that black ground! It makes the colors dance right off the bat....(fits this subject pretty well...Lol.)

C&C welcome! Thanks for looking! :)

Done at 2 hrs.

Wow love that movement in her feet and the power of her hands. Like Ruth I think the electric blue and dramatic strokes of the background really sizzles. Jen

Great painting, Deano. This was an exciting and entertaining evening for us and you've captured the atmosphere superbly. That blue flash above the figure makes it dance!

Your strong sharp blue light really zings against her headdress!

TErrific movement and the black background really made her leap off the page ( or pardon me, dance right off the page)! Well done!

You caught the drama of the dance Deano - love the tension of the upper half and the impression of movement in the lower - and the contrast of dramatic hand gesture with rapid feet - not seen!!! :lol:

Hey Deano:wave: super painting:clap: my fav is the arm and hand on the left as you look:) love the b/g all the movement seems to generate from there.

Not tried black gesso,but soft pastels on black sandpaper has the same effect,it makes the colours pop.

Deano - I agree with you about the background - very striking and fitting to the dance and dancer. The entire painting is wonderful!
