I did manage to drag myself to this mornings portrait session to draw the lovely, young Ashley.
And the portrait from last weeks short session - Willow.
Now off I go to wrap myself in a warm throw (its rainy and cold here today with new snow on the mountain tops), drink some hot tea and read the Degas biography that I started a while back.
Bonjour ma chère Susan,ReplyDelete
Brrr... L'automne est bien installé et presque déjà l'arrivée de l'hiver avec la neige sur vos cimes.
Avec la fraîcheur, les premiers rhumes, les premières grippes et la fatigue.
Prenez du miel, et une petite cure de echinacea (au début du printemps et de l'automne c'est excellent) pour vous requinquer.
Je suis fascinée par vos trois merveilleux portraits... J'aime aussi le travail de leur chevelure... et ce regard profond, impénétrable...
Gros bisous et prenez soin de vous.
Many thanks for your kind concern and caring suggestions. I am finally happy to say my head has cleared and I am fully recovered. It has been a long haul!Delete
ondanks je verkoudheid, heb je weer prachtige schetsen gemaakt , vooral de eerste vind ik geweldig.
Nog een fijne dag,
I can hardly remember making these sketches - isn't that fumy? But I suppose that I was busy trying to fight off that nasty virus as I drew. In any case, I guess the portraits themselves are proof that I did go!Delete
Well I'd have a hard time drawing like this on a good day let alone a bad!!!! These are amazing! I really hope you are feeling much better soon :0)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sandra - in retrospect, I see so much I could have improved. I don't think my mind was fully engaged.Delete
Too much Drama in your life will bring on a cold. But it certainly didn't have an effect on the brilliance of your work over the last few posts. The Ballerina will be outstanding. Relax with Degas and a cup of TLC. Art sooths the soul.ReplyDelete
Exactly - too much drama. I just wish things would settle down and hope they do soon. Life can be so unpredictable but I think that must be what keeps us on our toes. Thanks for your kind support and glowing words. I have not felt like myself at the easel for the longest time. I must have dozens and dozens of wipe offs over the past few weeks. Once again, I am waiting for this to pass. I cannot blame it on not being well either. It just is.Delete
Really wonderful portraits. All the best.
P.S. get well.
I think I am getting overly comfortable with the pencil and long to feel that way about my brushes.Delete
Your drawings are wonderful! All the best for your health.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Judy. I am thankfully full of health and vigor once again!Delete
So sorry about your health! Rest! Do nothing! Rest some more! Hot tea! Soup! Some wonderful reading and maybe an old film noir on television? Hope you are better soon!
Love these drawings. Glad you were able to make it to do the drawings. Keep on keeping on! Don't be afraid of the ballerina! Well maybe a little fear but carry on! I miss the series! Also our horse buddies! Imagine me making on line art requests! Get well!
Your Sorry Susan Is Sick Art Buddy!
Hot tea, soup, rest - they do work their magic, dont't they? I am fine now - longing to get back to painting. Those horse and ballerinas are so patient in waiting for me!Delete
Beautiful drawings all! just wonderful. I so hope you are on the road to recovery! stay warm and wrapped up!ReplyDelete
Many thanks, Suzanne. I am healthy once again and glad to be done with that virus.Delete
Lovely drawings you've been making! I especially like the profile views. Get well soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Diana. Profiles fascinate me - I love doing them.Delete
these lovely drawings satisfy something deep inside me. They are so solid and yet the lines are very sensitive. How do you do that?ReplyDelete
How nice of you, Judy - I always love reading your comments. I search for the truth of each line and how it conveys the reality of the sitter - I don't know how it happens and think it comes from a state of mind. I certainly appreciate that you think the lines are sensitive. Many thanks.Delete
I hope your nose, throat and head are back to healthy by now. I am so sorry.ReplyDelete
Amazing drawing skills and feelings in your sketches!
All is well now, Irina and I am back to attending the Wednesday sessions.ReplyDelete
All fantastic drawings as usual Susan. I love them just as much as i love your paintings. all the best Susan.
