Basque Dancer - DMB Challenge

Basque Dancer   oil    9" x 7"
This month's Diana Moses Botkin Challenge was 'chiaroscruro' as provided by Mark Adams. I probably didn't get quite enough drama in the darks here, but was happy with the painting. If you follow my posts, you have seen my model Alicia before. I also have a slideshow demo of this piece and will post it sometime this weekend or Monday. Meanwhile please enjoy the other challenge entries below.

Hi Mary. You're right I wouldn't call this chiaroscuro, but your painting is beautiful and captivating nonetheless. Love it!
