  1. Bonjour cher Anthony,

    Vous avez été charmé par une danseuse du ventre... Avez-vous eu droit à une démonstration ?... Un croquis en action qui pourrait être intéressant ! à suggérer à votre modèle...
    J'aime beaucoup cette capture et vos belles couleurs...

    Gros bisous ♡

    1. I think I was charmed more by the sense of rebellion displayed in her pose☺
      Thank you

    1. More human and in the moment, I think.

  3. Maybe she's tired of being looked at yet her body her lovely gentle sea-worthy colours are belying her expression gosh I love the cloth I can feel it in my hands and those soft muted pastel light blue light aquamarine that if you look twice might even feel like softest green....be tired, just don't stop.Wow I love this Anthony!!!!I would put that in my bedroom so I could look at the softness...I would not see the rebellion, I've rebelled enough....I just want to be soft...how I love this

    1. It’s nice that you can see so much in this sketch at the end of a long day.

  4. Yes, she is tired...the silent question is asked, "Why do I do this?"
    There comes a time when boredom gets in the way of a beloved activity.
    But I am next in line...I would love to learn to belly dance...perhaps it is the dressing up part of my psyche - that gorgeous costume!:))

    1. She has been “doing” for years. I’m not sure the question comes up any more. I was surprised how many of the women I draw and paint with have or want to try belly dancing too.
      Thank you
