“Bourrée” and “Gigue” were commonly used in music during the Renaissance or Baroque period to title and describe lively dance compositions. These tend to be the shortest songs in suites. In my illustration I wanted to capture this hurried movement with twirling and spinning. Using quick sketching with my pen I wanted there to be a sense of ease and continuousness of a gesture. Also a whirlwind of images, one leading into the next. Just as I felt when I was dancing. When I listen to these pieces they seem to bounce and never slow. I couldn’t help but bob my head. And then a quickly as it began it was over. The gigue was up!
