Parade of Joy - Sketch

I have come up with a sketch that I like for a new painting in my Body Language series.  I like the movement that I captured.  The figures are dancing with joy in a sort-of  semblance of a parade. 

I will transfer the sketch to an old canvas.  I like to reuse canvases that I began a painting on - then abandoned for some reason.  I seldom use a pristine canvas, if I need to use a new one I will smear left over paint onto a white canvas to tone it down before using it. 

As I progress I will post more photos.

To be continued...

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
you can do with some pics to drive the message home
a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.
I will definitely be back.

You mention classes! My wife and I visit the area and most often stay in the North Myrtle Beach hotels. Do you ever host beginner art classes that we could participate in together when we visit? We visit often and repeatedly during the summer months! Thank you! Great blog!
