Figure Practice


On Fridays when I take ballet class, I have time to have coffee and sketch before going to pick up my grandson at nursery school.  I try to use this time to practice figure drawing of dancers from photos in ads in magazines.

Here is my painting from today.


Wow, Shirley! Great face. Great body. Look at what you can do!

very nice! i like your lemon drawing too.

You always manage to capture these soft graceful poses perfectly. I would recognize your style anywhere! simply lovely.

I love this. Being a dancer myself I'm fond of the subject matter but the facial expression is something that is really atracting me to this! Great!

How lovely is this?!?

Would you be able to sit around in the dance studio and actually draw live dancers?

I love it! look at that beautiful face!
