I like the colours you chose on the top foto. And I like the red block you inserted on the bottom. They seem to fit together.
The two drawings are great!I liked the lines complementing the composition!
oh very powerfull and nice, remaind me an elizabeth peyton, great works
I really like the way you use the markers and the colours are perfect!
Thanks, all.This was my first time back at the life drawing group since I injured my knee. I felt nervous, even about getting myself there and back, but it went okay.I brought a moleskine sketchbook on which to draw, which worked out okay but not great. Mainly, it meant I couldn't use an easel, which is my preference.
I'm always the last to know. What knee incident? Where did this nano bit of info show up?You keep giving me new favorites. The bottom. The line work for the hands, complicated but in a good way. The formal break up of space. The swan neck swirls
Thanks, PA. The swirls are based on/derived from a tattoo that this model has on one calf. A paisley pattern that my swirls don't really do justice to.I think it's been floating about. I messed up my knee on Feb 20th and am just getting back into the world. I'm going back with a much larger knowledge of Grey's Anatomy: I watched every available episode on Netflix. (For the first several days, I couldn't even read.)
I like the legs. But the face in the top picture kind of unsettles me. I don't know why.
Margaret, is it the asymmetry?
Jean, sorry to hear about your knee. Hope you are healing. I love the way you bring these figures to life with the scratches and swirls.
Thanks, Susan. I think I'm healing, but my faith in my knee has been shaken.
Oh darn, so that's what it is. I've been thinking about you.
Hi Jean, I thought I left a comment last week, but I see I have not. Must of speed typed it.I really like both of these, the shade details are so nice and your proportions are always spot on. You make it look easy, but it's not.I hope your knee heals up soon. I'm sorry to hear you've been having trouble with it.
Yes, sorry to hear about your knee, I hope there's a remedy. Your painting seems all the more intense knowing you have an impediment. Is that the red coming out?
Jean, DR is me. I was logged in under my husband's name by mistake. Sorry!
Thanks, AH, Pamo and Paula.I appreciate your comments.Paula (aka DR), I think the red is unrelated, though I was--and continue to be--crankier than usual because my leg is reminding me of its existence so persistently.
