"Little Aztec Dancer"
14" X 14"
Surprise! I've been un-blogging for quite a while now, but I have returned. I have actually painted quite a bit since my last blog post (we won't talk about how long that's been!). I'll post some of my more recent paintings in the next week or so. However, a few weeks back, I felt like doing a graphite drawing and this is the result.
I took the reference photos for this drawing way back in 2006. We were visiting my sister in New Mexico and we went to the New Mexico State Fair. There was a group of Aztec Indians from Mexico City performing and this little tike was there with his family. He was only around 20 months old at the time, so I guess he's about 7 years old now. I always meant to do this one - started it once in colored pencil, but didn't care for how it was looking. I had a great time drawing it in graphite!
