Mix It Monthly art Challenge for October

Over on The Mix is Monthly Site Here the challenge is to do some art with a crowd in it. A crowd being 3 or more people. She also challenged us to use the orange, yellow and blue colors with some texture.
Well last night after my dear hubby went to bed, I found a magazine picture again to inspire me in a fashion magazine. I found these 3 ladies dancing the tango. I thought that would be the perfect thing to draw! I had a real challenge with the lady who is looking down at the first girl's feet to learn the steps. I erased her many times but finally am somewhat happy with how I have her looking.
After I was happy with the girls, I drew them in with ink and did watercolors.
My texture is Liquitex Blended fibers texture gel. I inked over the gel when it dried. I especially like the stone floor with texture. The walls have texture too but not the girls themselves.
I hope that you enjoy it because it was really fun to do and the most relaxing thing I did all day.
