Ribbon Dance

My parents were Ball Room dancers, my father was trained as an instructor of Ball Room Dancing, so of course I’m in love with the art dance!

In honor of my parents and my daughter (also a dance performer), I’ve created a selection of etchings and collages that celebrate the art of dance!

The studio began taking on a nautical theme once I began wrapping the metal support poles with nautical rope.  From that point on, the nautical and beach like atmosphere seemed to be the perfect theme to showcase my artwork.

DSC_9527 charcoal drawing titled Munsey

The drawing of Munsey had taken me about a solid 24 hours of time from start to finish.  Of course I didn’t sit down for 24 hours and draw the composition all at one time.  I spent about a month working on this drawing, while I worked on other bear related collages.

I used multiple photographs of Munsey in order to get the lighting and perspective of the bear captured correctly.  The fur coat was drawn three different layers because it needed to capture the muscle tone, the bears under coat as well as his wispier top coat.

This wasn’t an easy draw and I had to constantly remind myself that I could accomplish this task if I persevered!  So, I was was very pleased with the end result!

Once I had drawn out the basic outline of the bear in pencil,  I used powered charcoal, feathers, a sham, various types of erasers to draw the this composition.  I had the most fun drawing the fur coat because it lends itself to be more abstract.
