Studio drawings

Getting down to drawing, or are they paintings? Anyway, the last 3 weeks have been devoted to drawing and also to a little of time lapse drawing, more about that in a moment. I have delved into the world of dark and light.  Dances on stage are often choreographed with strong lighting and up until recently I had shied away from tackling this. With the nights closing in I thought it would be interesting to see how this might work and so the drawings here sort of reflect that, they sort  of emerge from this cloak of dark blues and blacks.

Whilst having a look for potential videos to draw from I found this stunning dancer, Sylvie Guillem, who is elegant, beautiful and quirky. She appears a lot in the following drawings.

Here is one photo of Sylvie

Which in a round about turned to various studies of her
