The first time I saw this jitterbug/jive/lindy step, I was dumbstruck. Maybe the second and third times, too. The guy - usually lower to the ground than this jiver - sort of scoots or hops along while the girl holds on tight to his hand to give him balance. Anyway, it's unbelievable and I just can't help but wonder about his knees. A fun thing, though, and I love it, because I adore what the jivers do as they jitterbug through life. This started as an ink drawing and I was really happy with it. Then, I thought about a little color - that's where the trouble usually starts for me, because my lines end up covered and ruined. But I added just a smidgen here and there, so the lines wouldn't be obscured, and it seems to work??? It's on Bristol board paper, about 9 x 7 1/2". Thanks so much for stopping by!Sold
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
