Drawing dancers from the net

Below are some drawings from 2018. I wanted to draw the movement of a dancer, but not having a chance to draw a real dancer in a studio I resorted to drawing from videos on the internet.

I tried to capture the flow and energy of the movement whilst also capturing the form of the body through quick gestural marks.

I also made some more drawings I made around the city which I posted on chrisfraserart.com
