  3. I should take color lesson from you. This is great. I love the distortion of the drawing and the wild application of color. Very dynamic.

  4. Jean, just scrolling through your posts to try and catch up. Wow! Very impressive work. I didn't know you were in Europe. I love thinking about you drawing on your iPad in the old country. It's amazing what flows from your hand on to the page or the screen or the canvas.

  7. Wonderful. The languid ness of her pose and expression contrast in an interesting way with the vibrant color.

  8. Hola Jean. Siento debilidad por la figura y especialmente por el retrato y el desnudo.
    Este trabajo me encanta. Me gusta mucho la posiciĆ³n de las piernas, el brazo derecho relajado, el color.
    Excelente ¡¡¡

  9. Thanks, Konstantina.

    I gave her one enormous leg. It is actually her leg moving through space, as it collapsed inward during the pose.

    I think it gives kind of a closer to you feel to that body part.

    I tend toward limited palettes.

  11. Thanks, Susan.

    Europe was great. I saw some beautiful stuff. (Art, in Paris, with a museum pass.)

  12. Thanks, Margaret.

    The color is vibrant in person too, but not necessarily to the degree a particular computer monitor displays it as.

    I try to keep it simple, just a few colors.
