Tango dancers: cont…

I’ve been working on another ink painting, again using just black and white. This time the dancers are professionals but I  liked their embrace and the way she is stepping back. Very tango.

As I worked on the main image I was aware of certain lines and shapes that I wanted to focus on but couldn’t on the smaller scale. So I identified those shapes: the line of her arm on his back, the curve of her back and her feet: and produced close-ups of them.

The combination of the images produces an interesting composition/focus and as someone remarked today a ‘Marvel’ comic book effect.
