Another Challenge TAXI #21

Heleni has given us another challenge to help get us out of the "box" ... this time the word TAXI.....
After really trying to rack my brain I saw one of the latest "Who Do You Think You Are" series where Roshida  Jones , who was looking for her grandmother, found out that she worked as a "Taxi Dancer".... After looking for some references found one of some girls waiting on the sidelines.... Today is the critique....

Work done on 300 grm paper  gouache and oil pastel....about 45 cm x 35 cm


Still out of my comfort zone with gouache... but had fun with this one...

Got good feedback on the concept and idea. Heleni thought I could do better on the drawing. Really some great ideas were done this time... will share the album..

Beautiful as always and the taxi dancer info I found is a bit of history I never knew.
