Original artwork description:

This is a new drawing in the Silhouettes series.
But it was inspired not with the real girl, but with the ones seen portrait of 1913 of an almost unknown or forgotten Russian Belle Epoque artist Elena Kiseleva ( 1878 – 1974 Voronezh-Belgrade).
Yes, she came out in a "al andaluz" manner, because colors and fabrics of Andalusia surround me.
Silhouettes
You can access artist’s inspiration from the celebrations, dance events, ferias, festivals taking place in Andalucía, Spain
These feminine silhouettes were picked up in Sevilla, Granada and Malaga. Whirls of colors, passion, movements, happiness, fatigue, drama. Girls could be professional flamenco dancers or just models, dressed in traditional Spanish dresses.
The technique of this series is gouache and pastel over Canson paper. Drawings are made quickly as sketches, just to pick up a silhouette. And pastel strokes in several layers give the artworks depth and vibrancy.

Materials used:

gouache, pastel
