Hand In Red And Blue; Head In Blue

 Drawn this morning, from life.

The hand is Tombow marker, with water and brush, on 9"x12" drawing paper.

The head is Tombow marker and ink, with water and brush, on 9"x12" sanded pastel paper.

This model has amazing hair, which she never cuts.

Liz, this drawing is for you.

  1. I'm tempted to say the red and blue of the hand are more interesting to me, but I LIKE the blue lady better--character study of a face to be wondered about for a long time. So which is REALLY more interesting? I like both for entirely different reasons. How about that?

    (And how did I get so far behind? Sorry).

  4. I am always attracted to the blues in your paintings and drawings. They're wonderful pieces and I still envy you the luxury of access to these models.

  5. Thanks, Banjo. Visit when you can. Don't worry about what you miss. Trust that it will still be here when you can visit. (That's been true for most stuff, in the past.)

  6. Thanks, Cristinota, Joni and Pamo. The encouragement helps, when I'm pressing myself to develop skills.

  7. Thanks, Jeanette. The ready availability, and relatively low cost, of the models are things I feel lucky to be able to take advantage of.

  8. Thanks Jean. I made the appointment off the MD recommendation of another artist. Hand and wrist surgeon. Must be good; two weeks to get in.

    btw: that woman looks a little bit like me

  9. You're welcome. A little magic couldn't hurt, and might help. (I know, about the resemblance; I was thinking a bit about that teen photo you posted, among the flowers.)

    The surgeon sounds good: I like a doc with a waiting list.

  10. Inspired is the word that comes to mind - I love the palette.

  12. Maybe I'm in the minority but I like the red arm/hand/torso a lot.

  13. I love the look of those markers. I love the definition of lines. It's justbold enough. Love her face. She is lovely.
