The Dancers

This is a somewhat recent colored pencil drawing, entitled "The Dancers", that I did on toned paper ("ivy" canson 19"x25"). I had had little experience in colored pencil, and found I needed to sharpen the pencil I was using after almost every stroke, as well as use a magnifying glass for the more detailed sections.
