Illustration: The Carioca

A third watercolour sketch of Fred Astaire dancing. This time it's 'The Carioca' from Flying Down to Rio. I could have done a better pose, but wanted the heads together, since that's basically the whole point of the dance. 

Two heads together
they say are better than one
Two heads together
that's how the dance is begun

Not the best likenesses, but it'll do. 

Winsor and Newton watercolours, Artline Drawing System pens and Atelier Waterproof Drawing Ink (Carbon Black) in a Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook.
About 2 hours in total.
