just a few colors and I tried holding back enough to use the "paper" as a color too. tried not to overdo the face either. (either that or I'm lazy. hmmmm.)

If it is being lazy then in this case it's a good thing :lol: , Love the simplicity of it and those eyelashes are gorgeous :thumbsup:

Dito what Jean said! Love it. I find alot of these pieces, master sketches, unfinished pieces, simle aproaches far more interesting myself.

thank you for your thoughts. I too like the eyebrows, jean. I can be fairly horrific at them...sometimes trying to draw too many individual lashes, or alternately drawing them too planar without enough detail. Need practice, practice, practice.

Kenny, thank you. I like what you did at your site, especially your drawing of this woman (http://www.kacweb.com/art/media/prev17.jpg), which is getting at the same idea I'm trying to do.
I also peeked at your poetry. I enjoyed the "Darwin in Kansas" poem. It's wonderful that you're combining photos, poetry, and drawing. Have you ever combined poetry and drawing on the same work...I mean like illustrated poems or maybe poetic illustrations? Makes me want to try it, though I find poetry insanely difficult.

Nice job Tom. There is beauty in simplicity. One of the hardest techniques for me to learn is when to stop.

Thanks! Yes that is one of my favorite drawings I've done. I do have a kind of constant simmering thought of creating a book of photographs and poetry but have not gotten the pump primed enough to get it under way....one of these days perhaps. :)

Very easy on the eye - a good case of less is more:thumbsup:

I've done similar things but never better.

I've done similar things but never better. Wow, thank you much, Fugi! I've been a fan of your stuff for a long time.

I'm pleased this drawing seems to connect with a lot of people. It makes me think I should work some more in this area, with this palette, with a little restraint.

Tom, even in this unfinished style, your painting proves you to be very adept at modeling facial features and contour. Nice touches all around.:thumbsup:

If one can d/l films from the net, there is a painter named Bob Ross who does many subjects, in acrylic I guess, and I just viewed a sea storm coming one that taught me some things, look him up.
