  1. wow! Jean! all are amazing!
    the third is my favorite - the colors well chosen, different intensities
    scoring volumes and luminosities;
    are excellent!

  2. The last drawing has that black velvet thing going which is retro cool. Actually the middle figure also; interesting solution to developing the background.

    The black eye on the first drawing. The disembodied shoulder and the blending of color outlining it. love

    so while you were out drawing this morning, I was choking on oil paint fumes. Continuing work on my kitchen. trade places?

  4. I like the character study in #1, world-weary yet kinda dominant. But the colors and feel of completeness make #3 my favorite. Really a nice combo of design and color.

  5. I love how you capture the poses so well. The lines and styling are all yours. I can't name a favorite here- they all are very strong.

  10. Thanks, PA.

    The last time we painted rooms, which was in the spring, we ended up sleeping elsewhere for a bit, it was so pervasively noxious. So, no, don't think I want to trade.

    What color(s) did you settle on?

  11. Thanks, Anthony.

    As you know, the combination of model and artist is what makes the life drawing.
