Lot of time spent on this which I consider well spent. I will have another go on a larger paper (Full sheet)  in the near future.
Suggestions and critique welcome.

This is great, Bill! So much energy in this painting. You've done a stellar job on the shadows in the folds  and ruffles of her dress.

really great job Bill, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

The body area of the dress is a bit light on contrast. Check your reference to see where you can add some more dark values. That will give the body more depth and dimension O0

Flamenco Dancer Revisited. I implemented the suggestions, it makes a big difference. With the knowledge gained I look forward to doing this again.
