When we were in port in Honduras there were groups of children dancing on the pier. I loved the costumes and took a snapshot of one girl about 8-9 years old.
When I came to the point of drawing it I kept the twists and turns of the costume but changed it up to be a lady rather than a child.
This sketch I DID work in pencil first and then went over that with brown pen for the final product.
I'm not such a good people drawer but it was really the folds of fabric that fascinated me in this pose.
