9 x 12" Art Spectrum ....... loads still to do - thanks for looking - image from the library of course :) ... but Ive adapted it somewhat

How can there be loads more to do? It looks so completely beautiful to me! And, yes, I do love all those blues, greens and purples in that luscious baby soft skin.

HEY! Where've you been, Dawn?? I had to put out an all-points bulletin on you in the scumble, and was thinking of sending a hunky Nat'l Guardsman after you, 'cept I figured you'd get lost again after that just to get found again. We missed you in the backrow- it was your turn to bring snack. We hadda eat rice cakes- Sooz is on some weird health kick from living in Colorado, I think (okay, okay- they had white chocolate on 'em, but still....)
I'm going to d/l this and study those skin hues, Dawn- it is magnificent! You caught her rosebud mouth just right, too- and a great crop. Beautiful work!

This looks like a wonderfully challenging color study! You must be enjoying yourself. What more are you planning on doing?
05-06-2004, 03:20 PM
Awwwwhh.... :D What a nice expression you caught!..and all those colors do work well together. Wonderful job...looking forward to see what you might do next with this. I'm with SBJ, kinda missed you here :)

This is gorgeous! You are so GOOD at this stuff! This is softies? Or OPs? Can't imagine it being OPs, but then I see lovely stuff done with 'em (just not by ME)!
I agree...if it ain't broke, don't fix it! It's done! (Brandishing frying pan threateningly--sometimes ya gotta clobber artists to get 'em to quit when it's done).

Hey DS,you have a beautiful touch with those pastels,looks nigh on perfect to me,my only thought is you might want to tweak and define the eye at the bottom just a tad, no matter like it lots :clap:

One day soon it will be sold Dawn. I'm with Kat - oh by the way - welcome back Kat!!! (slowly working through the pages and pages of artwork posted here).
Dawn you have a knack of selecting just the right view and this one is just magnificent. All those colors you've incorporated in the face aren't lost on me - but I would like a close up of even just the eyes or those luscious lips!!!
You really do have fun with children and I guess it takes one to know one!!!
Hurrah for you - that's a compliment.

Lol Barb ....thanks :D
Does this help ....... not showing too good on my monitor :p
05-09-2004, 10:22 AM
Dawn- works perfectly. I can really see the subtle colors and the strokes of your pastel more. Love those lips!!! And those delicate greens of cool and warmth over different parts of the eye.
