Such repose. I feel like I would like her.
Hi Jean, I Admir so much your works...
Thanks, Margaret.She feels so sad to me.
Thanks, Laura.Me too, yours.
Ciao jean,languore e scetticismo caratterizzano questo volto dai colori incredibili che gli danno un fascino enorme!Stanco della vita o meditabondo su ciò che lo circonda?Ciao. abbracci, Floriana
this is lovely Jean. The background color and the yellow lime
I like the lighting lines, very effective. She looks so sad though--or totally exhausted.
I love the colors in this Jean...the yellow green works so well to evoke light...
This is so expressive! Such sadness and defeat in her face. You have a great knack for depicting emotions with minimal lines-
Thanks, Floriana.I was thinking about 9/11 when I drew this. The spasmNess that permeates it was mine.
Thanks, PA.I like using my silver pen that I bought in Paris--because it turned out that only iPad wouldn't do.
Thanks, Linda.Yes, the face is very sad.
Thanks, Chieftess.I actually had a bit of light to work with in this case, it wasn't all imagined by me, as it frequently is.
Thanks, Najma.I saw how sad I had made her when I drew it, but I left it that way.
By the way, nobody has asked, but the model really did have the jewelry depicted, though not the extreme sadness.
Hi Jean, fantastic job! hugs
Powerful color again! Nice subtle textures and tones happening too, I see. I think she looks reflective...
You are a true artist - you have a most versatile assortment of platforms you work on! And you are consistent on all. You inspire me:-)
Yes, it's sadness or resignation that I see. The colors suit the subject, but I can't say they pull me in. Is that completely subjective, or are there some certain, factual, universal eye-to-brain associations, like what we always hear about blue with coolness and calm?
Thanks, Mari Jose. Hugs back.
Thanks, Katherine.It was a time for reflection.
Thanks, minn.I am glad.
I don't know, Banjo.With color, a lot depends on context, the other colors. A lot also depends on the temperature of the color, there are cool reds and hot blues, though one normally might think only of cool blue and hot red.
How interesting to learn that you drew the sadness into her expression yet she wasn't really sad. So I see the nose ring. Are those piercings in her cheeks?
Susan, those are studs in her cheeks.Most models assume a neutral expression that relaxes the face as much as possible. It is extremely hard to keep anything approaching joy on the face for minutes on end.
The result is that they look contemplative, maybe sad, maybe stressed, if the rest of the pose is difficult or painful to maintain.
