Indian dancer in water soluble crayons and pen



A group I belong to had an Indian dance expert model and talk about the history and moves of her particular style of dance. Most of the time she was constantly moving, talking about the stamping rhythm, the meaning of the hand gestures and the design of the costume - fascinating but SO difficult to sketch!

She's a doctor by day and once a week she dances.

Finally we asked if she could sit down for us and let us catch our breath

Fantastic night sketching lovely colours and lots of gold. I used a fountain pen and Caran d'Ache Neocolour II with some cheap waxy watersoluble crayons from Lidl (? they were a present so not certain if Lidl or Aldi)

Wonderful study sketches of the Indian dancer. You have captured the figures and hand movements beautifully. I have to say your hand writing is lovely too. Well done!
