Geneviéve: Baile Folklorico

For this month’s challenge I wanted to do something off the wall like make a cello dress, but I’m just not that creative when it comes to designing things. So instead, I just went on the spur-of-the-moment and drew the first thing that suggested music to me.

I chose the traditional dress of the Baile Folklorico, which is a dance that I grew up with. The colorful fanning dresses and the beautiful braids and lacy shawls, etc., were common in my childhood and I always loved the sheer variety of colors used in these garments: the bolder the better!

My line work here is a little shaky; I’ve fallen out of practice and desperately need to get back into it. I’m glad I have these monthly themes to keep me going!
