Rumberos (Rhumba Dancers)

15x22 multimedia

Done on a half sheet of watercolors . I started with wet-in-wet idea.Let paint flow downward with thin coats of gouache. Blotted with paper towel and began to get texture. After more layers I defined some areas.When I turned the painting upside down,it reminded me of Cuban Rhumba dancers from my native land.
