This torso thing
I've had a thing for this certain torso gesture ever since working with a wonderful dancer called Ali, in London last century.
I’ve drawn and painted the twisting turning torso, one arm extended, one arm flexed, with the fingers under the influence of the superbly named Flexor Digitorum Profundus.
UPDATE: here's one of the first large drawings I did, in 1986, using graphite in those days, it has the beginnings of the twisted torso gesture
