  3. These are both terrific drawings!

    My fingers are itching again. It's funny how I lost interest in the figure when I stopped teaching Life Drawing. I never would have believed anyone if they said I would be drawing clouds..! I'll get back to it,though, I'm sure.

    wv: pretingl..yes..in the fingers before drawing

  4. You're hands are indie clouds SG. And I assume your feet are still solidly in CA soil!

  5. I see your meeting daily with the figure

    this drawing on the right is my favorite of all your work. It's perfect...the delicate line on the forarm. The way you've allowed the yellow to come through the figure. The determined strokes on the hair. The cropping.....I could go on and on

    perfect

  6. My favorite is the one above. Cezanne-y again, for me. The almost stone-like feeling of flesh.

  7. CO, it's wonderful to be drawing again, after so long a break.

    Thanks, Margaret and Shanna. I do love that yellow. And pretingl is perfect. It's what I was feeling before I started again.

    PA, it was fun to do, though surprisingly hard to draw that cropped shape from life (no view-finder).

    Thanks, AH. Once again, just the right description--"almost stone-like"; guess that's why you're a writer.

  10. What happened to the last drawing? The lack of comments speaks only about peoples prejudices...not the quality of the drawing. It was good and it had a humanity that was powerful

  11. PA, thanks for the kind words. I did take the drawing down, but not for lack of comments.
