A Drawing of Three Young Dancers

For my latest drawing, I combined a study of two child ballerinas with a sketch of a dance student resting at a bar. The two ballerinas came from a very old sketch, possibly dating back to the Aparri School of Dance in Princeton New Jersey. The youngster in the black leotard was drawn somewhat later during my stint as an instructor in a summer program at Columbia College. I was almost content with the study of the two young girls but I think that the addition of the background figure, the bar and the wall add dimension and volume. This was completed with my creamy grey pastels and charcoal.
