Sunday Sketch.......remembering Croatian folklore dancing .....


Hi Everyone....and Happy Sunday.....

When I was growing up I was in a Croatian folklore dance group and we used to perform all over the place....it was so much fun to wear intricate designed garbs and learn all about dance....So I whipped up this sketch as I remembered those years of dancing.....so these dancers came to life in my sketchbook.....

I am sharing these with all of my friends over at Sunday Sketches.....

Happy Sunday and Happy Creating Everyone!!!!
