Dancer

Over the past few years, I have filled notebook after notebook with letters as you see above.  I am fascinated by the graceful twirl of line I find in the alphabet--I didn't know why, until I discovered Art Nouveau.  There is an echo of that style in these letters I love to draw.
 
Since I discovered Art Nouveau, I have endeavored to learn the style.  The graphite drawing above was inspired by the exquisite work of Alphonse Mucha.  I will eventually add line and color to this drawing.  I'll post it when I'm done.  Most likely this piece will be up for sale on Etsy in a few weeks!
