Dance Costume for "E"




Dance Costume for “E”
For the costumed figure session I attended yesterday “E” posed in a similar version of the dance costume I did a drawing of her in back in January of 2013.
18”x 24” pastel on colored charcoal paper

    1. It’s almost a crime to make her stand still for us to draw and paint her. Could have spent the session watching her dance☺
      They have classes, you know☺

  5. Nicely done...do you find costumes interesting or a hindrance? In my life drawing session, one model poses with drapes, but I do not prefer them somehow.

    1. For the shorter poses I would rather work from a nude model. When the pose is say more than 30 minutes, I do enjoy the additional challenge of fabric.
