Danza de Veracruz

October 13, 2014

There are many Mexican folkloric dances, each with their own style of dress.  It appears that the Danza de Veracruz is the favourite in the small town of El Triunfo, a short distance from Todos Santos.  Or perhaps their dance troupe only has the white lacy dresses that is traditional for this dance.  Whatever the reason, it is a beautiful performance to watch.  I love white lace – doesn’t everyone?  But I had never attempted to paint it as we all know that white reflects many other colours, especially where shear lace is present.  Lots of layers of colour with both palette knife and brush hopefully captures the abundance of lace and the movement of the dress.  What caught my eye with this couple is how her partner appears to stand in awe of her beauty.
