Pen and Ink – The Dancer: Word Art Can Add to the Beauty of Art

The Dancer

A few weeks ago I did a quick morning sketch of a dancer and posted it on Instagram @eisycindy. After posting, I had numerous  inquires to purchase this piece.  The quick morning sketch was done on a cheap piece of tracing paper, not something I would sell.  The interest in this piece gave me a chance to play with Hahnemuhle Sumi – E fine art paper.  The paper has a beautiful, delicate texture that I feel suits this type of drawing well.

Utilizing open lines in both the hands and the skirt helps to create a feeling of movement.  Since I have been studying letter form lately, I wanted to include words in such a way that  would add to the feel of the dancer and not distract.  Softly incorporating color in the skirt helps to increase dimension, which adds to  the free-flowing feel of the overall piece.
