I like the theme of this piece...kind of an apres-plunder party. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
Looks great, hope you finish in time, but don't worry we can still post even if late,
Glad to see you have one of Gisela's parrots in your painting,

Urbanpoet - great drawing. If you are working small, it may be difficult to paint, with all the details. I would say this is more of an expressive piece, as opposed to attention being directed toward accuracy of figure drawing. You've done a nice job on the gals, and again, it may have been difficult for you to get some of the smaller details (ie: features on the faces, hands, and feet) with the charcoal you are using, especially when drawing on a canvas surface.Was it a charcoal pencil? Or a stick of some form?. It is a little hard to "read" the position (distance) of the girl in the center, her position in relation to the others. You may be thinking of resolving these things with the paint.(?), but I think it may be difficult to do. A good scene though...pieces with multiple figures are always more difficult. Michael
