Dancing Figure Series: Part 2 of 4
Sept. 27, 2012 — original post
Here’s the 2nd painting in my new series of dancing figures, in what I’m sensing is a new direction in my art. As I discussed thoroughly in the Dancer series’ intro blog post, I have previously leaned towards more total abstraction, but with this mini-series has enlightened me on how I can abstract figures in an energetic way.
The initial pencil drawing is below, where I had the first breakthrough moments, before making the painting. I hope you enjoy these leaping figure studies, and there are 2 more paintings to follow in the next 2 days.
Original painting sold, but small prints available upon request.
