Warming up for dancers


To revisit old places is dangerous, they may not be as you remember them! My revisiting dance as a subject has brought on some serious conversations with myself. Here is a charcoal, gouache and ink study of two classical dancers and I find the demands of accuracy make the need to return to my old style of work overwhelming.
This exercise will push me into a new place if I am to remain true to myself, bringing this familiar source material up to where I with my current work.
