Flamenco2 BMM2015 OpeningCeremony

This is sixth and final painting in the set of six paintings that was performed live during BMM 2015 Opening Ceremony, Jugalbandi piece.
**BMM - Bruhan Maharashtra Mandal
For looking at overview and 6 paintings together, look at blog post here.

The Dancers portrayed "pancha mahabhoot" (5 elements of nature) theme. Flamenco dancers emphasized "Fire" element. Hence in the literal sense, I chose to paint fire for Flamenco dancers. I love bright warm colors and this painting portrays energetic movements of brush strokes.
