Shadowness - lightrainbow http://shadowness.com Hello! My name is Svetlana. I'm absolutely a self-taught artist. I like to draw portraits, figures, animals, still lives and so on in style of photore... en Farruca http://shadowness.com/lightrainbow/farruca <a href="http://shadowness.com/lightrainbow/farruca"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/217582/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />“Una gitana en su cueva alegremente bailaba y al compás de una farruca que su gitano le cantaba” Rufino de Paterna, Paterna de la Ribera (Cádiz) 1938 This drawing I made as a birthday present for my best flamenco teacher Svetlana Savelyeva, who inspires me every day and is still doing. In my opinion this image, style of flamenco farruca suits her a lot and wildly opens her character. Her lessons are such pleasure every time. She's wonderful teacher and person herself and I'm so glad that met her two years ago and is still living in the world of flamenco together. Muchas gracias por todo!

I loved this medium so much and I'm so obsessed by painting in general the last time. But it was really hard, it's so different from pencils, that's why I know there're a lot of mistakes in this one. But I'm learning and will consider these mistakes for my future works. Even if in the beginning of painting I was so upset and wanted to throw it away, now I like how it turned out.)))

It was made in 2011 for my good flamenco friend, but she could present it to him only yesterday. I saw him dancing the last year in tablao "Casa de la Memoria" in Seville, he's absolutely amazing! And this person was so amazed by this drawing as I was by his dance! And he wants to meet me. It's really such honour for me.:heart Only for these great moments and emotions I need to go further, draw and improve. Graphite pencils on Canson paper. Size - A4.

I started this drawing in 2011 and finished it already in 2012. This medium is new for me and I have a lot of problems working with it, I began to get used to it only in the end. But I like charcoal for its great contrast. I think the next time I'll take more smooth paper. Charcoal and charcoal pencils on Fabriano Accademia paper.
