New York Dance Parade on 5/18/2013
Oil , 12 x 9
Yesterday, New York City organized a Dance Parade on Broadway, from University Place to Tompkins Park. Altogether there were around 200 dance groups that participated in the parade representing more than 75 ethnic groups' dances in a broad spectrum from traditional folk dances to all kinds of modern dances. Unfortunately, it was raining. In spite of the bad weather, the dancers were passionate in their performance. I took quite a few pictures for my morgue. On subway, I also grabbed a sketch of a music lover. This morning, it was still raining, so I simply stayed home and experimented with colors based on one of the pictures I took yesterday.
