Joy of the Dance - 11

Watercolor: Joy of the Dance - 11"x 10"


At the conclusion of the KVMR Celtic Festival at the Grass Valley Fair Grounds in September 29, 2019, people were dancing to the frantic Skerryvore band. One young woman was dancing with great abandon. I was fascinated about how her hair bounced around. I masked her hair carefully to do the background. But it looked funny with hard edges on the hair when the mask was removed. So I fuzzed the edges with a Fitch scrubber, but that caused the Thalo in the background to bleed into the hair. Oh, well! I think the picture captures the energy of the dancer. Watercolor, 11" x 10".
