Dynamic Figures

This beautiful image is Edgar Degas. Preparing this image for class has given me a whole new appreciation for  Degas.  He has captured special moments in time and he has rendered them with spectacular technique.

I did this on hot press watercolour paper.  Before starting the pencil work I laid in a light value blue-green wash.  I let that wash dry and then did the drawing.  The brightest whites were done using white chalk.

It was a real pleasure to do this image.
