This was also done for the WDE on WetCanvas from a reference photo by "123harry". I started this on one piece of watercolor with a pour, only to find out when the pour dried that the paper was damaged and the pigment settled really dark in the damaged spot. I debated if I should just crop it without her feet where the damage was, but what is a flaminco dancer without her feet? I ended up tracing the image onto another paper and starting over. Maybe I'll collage the other one at some point since a collage class is in my future. (Yeah!) This is 7.5 x 11.

Wow! A Flamenco dancer - how cool! You did a good job on her. Too bad about having to start over.
