Native American Dancer / Pencil


This is the latest pencil work that I've done. Since I don't travel much I use Wet Canvas site for inspiration. Great photos sent in by people and copyright free for artists to do 'their thing" . So I did mine with pencil, even though this was a very colorful photo I felt that need to do every detail and I'm pretty pleased with it.

  1. This piece is really lovely, Barbra Joan. You have such a way with pencil. I've labored over my drawings for the past few years, so I cn appreciate your absolute mastery of the medium.

    Have fun with your small travel set!

  3. I like her eyes, and the overall tone of the painting ... been thinking of doing water color portraits for while ... wet canavas is a good site to look for models !!

  4. She has such regal bearing - you have captured it beautifully...your pencil work is excellent. I also use Wet Canvas because I do not have the means or good health to travel. It is a wonderful treasurehouse for artists.
