I used to attend a life drawing group where one of the models was a ballet dancer. She would go through dance moves, continuously moving around the large studio floor and you tried with pencil and charcoal to catch quick fleeting poses before they changed – images partially recorded before she moved on. I then added colour to enhance the series of rapid lines and form. I wanted to keep the movement live and active, so chose warm reds interspersed with cool blues. A great atmosphere of concentration and haste as she seamlessly moved through her paces. For her a good workout, for us, the artists engrossed, a mixture of desperation, as one beautiful pose melted before us and was lost unrecorded among our furious activity to miss nothing, catch it all.
