Woman and man in a close dance move, about to kiss.
Her back to the viewer shows off her curves under her filmy dress which is edged in gold gouache.
Watercolour, watercolour pencil and gold gouache on beautiful teal textured Khadi paper..
I wanted to maintain the beautiful teal shade of the paper which forms the basic colour of the image with an added palette of white, gold and brown/black with some cerise highlights.
I use Winsor & Newton professional watercolours and Caran d'Ache pencil. When the temperature allows, I prefer to work in the open air -this was painted in my garden in the bright sunlight.
