In my sketchbook was an ink drawing that had been on my mind for a long time . . . so finally decided recently to enlarge it on canvas. I used the old-fashioned grid technique, which involves transferring the image one square at a time, until the entire image is redrawn.
The first photo shows the brother of a student holding up a scan of the original image, and the larger image already drawn in on canvas.
The next photo shows my student Gianna holding the completed work:
If you look at the piece as white on black, you see white dancers, but . . . if you look at the piece as black on white, you see black dancers. They are interlocked. A bit of an optical illusion!
One thought on “New painting—”Dancers””
Ed, this is really clever. Enjoyed seeing your students involved in the process as well.
