It Takes Two

"It Takes Two"  (Watercolor)  C. Eastwood, © 2014

For whatever reason -- maybe it's all the dancing shows on television -- I had a desire to try painting a couple dancing.  And if I'm going to paint two people, well, it almost has to be the tango, n'est-ce pas?  I'm trying some new techniques with this painting, allowing the shadows to have sharp edges (something I don't generally do).  It was definitely an interesting exercise since there were two people and I not only had to get each one sketched in a fashion that made sense and was recognizable, but they also had to relate to one another in size.  (It's good to challenge yourself!!)  I hope you enjoy it.
