These three dancers have been the object of my attention for some time. This rapid oil sketch tests the central horizontal section to see if it holds up as a work in its own right. Apart from the enjoyable result of the 'urgent' application of line and colour I am disappointed with the left hand curve as it lacks interest and the remnants of simplified thighs clogs my appreciation. I look for a sense of the power and control that exists here in the thigh and stomach of the dancer with less of that anatomical remnant. Below I try a reversed gray-scale version, I feel there is more here for me to do.
