thank you guys for your comments. Yes, I agree, the one with the two dancers is somewhat dull, was my first try with two figures which did not really exist. There was one model alternating poses, but the space around is completely made-up, have never tried it until then, so hopefully will get better.

tried to do a watercolor, but got too dirty with it, not a true watercolor technique.

another piece still in progress
thank you, brinkman.
here is a piece still in progress, need to fix some perspective issues. It's done in a class where the same model takes different poses in different outfits.
