FGP#13Charleston Couple

The Charleston Couple is completed by adding the hands and faces. When constructing the first bead ladder of a new area, I often do not choose an outer edge but instead choose a prominent inner line. There is little room for detail in the hand sand faces, so jaw lines and cheek shading must convey the essence of the face, especially in this couple who are facing away so that features are not apparent. More important than detail is the feeling of the motion of the dance and the fun of the nightclubbing experience that is the essence of my interpretation of the 6 of clubs.
