The dancers at the feria


It was the Jimena feria this weekend, and what a hot one it was too! I take my hat off to the ladies who shoehorn (dresshorn?!) themselves into the traditional flamenco dresses and very high heels and make their way carefully down to the feria. But how wonderful they look! I caught these two ladies dancing  sevillanas in a fairly empty hall, they were laughing and not taking themselves seriously at all. I think the main event had just finished but hard to know as nothing ever runs to the program….. Anyway, I took a lot of pictures and worked from them, using watercolours and pen and wash on my special new non-crinkle paper! 🙂
