Abstracting from the figure at the Art Students League is always fun. You never know what you will end up with. No, the model didn't really look like a "Dancing Pirate." But he did have a red T-shirt, and the brighter red and yellow in the top right corner did come from one of the fabric drapes in the background. The black curved sword was also one of the fabric drapes. Won a Red Dot (first prize) in the O'Cain class show at the Art Students League.
