For me, this painting represents the passion and spirit of flamenco mixed beautifully with my favourite style of painting. The painting was made from a series of sketches and photographs that I took at a flamenco show held in my local town. I had to wait until 2am for the show to get started and I was sat with some very serious and dedicated flamenco fans. I was keen to portray the visual feel of the show and I made a number of colour sketches and drawings of this pose before finalizing the pallet for the final painting.
