#126 "BAILLA"

"BAILLA"
8x10"
oil 
$150

Three folklorico dancers waiting to perform.

This seems like it would be easy to paint, but it's not.
At the beginning, I always really want to do a super accurate
drawing, but I never let myself.

This is why I'm afraid of figures!
I always want to sketch too tight.

So I make myself draw the top line where the heads are 
and just the basics of each skirt.
When I start painting, it's just a matter of
putting down marks of paint.
I try to be as loose as possible and also
to make as few marks as possible.
