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.
