Dancer Study

I used to collect every Robert Heindel illustration I could find back in the 70s—80s era, though I've lost a lot of them over the years. Besides general illustration assignments, he rendered a lot of dancer studies, always sensitive and usually with a lighter value of prussian blue as an undercoat, contrasting warms and cools.

You know, if you don't see the chair, that picture looks pretty weird.

Extremely subtle!

I like his use of color and the positioning of her figure, especially the tilt of her head and the positioning of her feet, as if they are in motion, already dancing, though she is at rest.
