I made it to Spring Street studios again this past weekend. As luck would have it there were two models to draw. They looked familiar and as I began to look and draw the short poses I realized I had drawn them at least 14 years ago. From what I remember they were both from Mexico. They were both dancers by trade. Not sure if they were a couple or just dance partners but they only model separately or with each other. They had aged obviously but were as awesome to draw this time as I remembered from last. I found it more jarring this time because I only drew them that one time and hadn't seen them until this last weekend. Other models I've drawn over the years that are still doing it I've usually run across a few times here and there, so you don't really see how different they are becoming from the first time.
I added a bit of gouache in just because it's fun.
