The Spanish Dancer by John Singer Sargent

We’re doing gesture sketches this week and this painting came to mind because Sargent captures the pose and movement of the dancer so well. Though his palette is limited, the effect certainly isn’t. He creates a wonderful variety of textures and makes full use of his palette resulting in colors with a rich and earthy vibrancy.
