Just to keep my hand in again, but with a bit more patience this time. The likeness is accurate. It's a shame I left my drawing things in the UK.

Good 1
Done with verve and confidence. I particularly like the way you've depicted and faded out the hair. As I'm sure you realize, the drawing would be more powerful with richer darks but I'm guessing you didn't have a full range of drawing pencils.

I agree with The Great Sloth. Good One! Mikey! I would say that as I am sure you know, you can make great art even with the end of a burnt twig...place should not inhibit you. Record the experience! You have an opportunity to branch out and grow...Go for it!

The nostril on the viewer's left is a millifart (technical measurement) to low.

Beautifully gentle

A little disturbing to me. You are obviously skilled, but where is the creativity? I ask that with complete respect and admiration for your talent.

tg, yes, a better pencil would have worked wonders. This 2B in fact seems like a 3H, and it's on cheap copy paper. I've worked and worked but it doesn't darken.

corby, I'm not sure how to branch out and unless I get a studio won't be doing much painting for some months. You may have read I had a health set back and have lost a lot of energy.

Thanks Marie, my lazyness, I didn't define the nostril in that shadow.

hi tovali, this isn't the way to creativity I'm looking for, but I will say that often it shows in the way we portray a person's character. I hope to have done than here.

Mikey, I am sorry to hear of your health problems. Hope you regain your energies quickly. I hadn't read. I am back on the WC...but am myself running pretty well in neutral. In branching out I was thinking of subject matter more than anything. As here, as always, you reveal your mastering of the human face...

Mikey, this is great. I really like it. It shows a lot of creativity. The drawing captures this ladie's likeness and charactor exceptionally well.

Very sensitive portrait. You have really captured her mood and pensive manner here.

It's good to see you continue posting given you are "out of your element" so to speak. I like the way you've done the glasses.

Thanks Corby, I'm finding my way forward to creativity to be a bit on and off. I'd very much like to master techinque and make it a means of expression as well as the more obvious creative touch. Part of the problem is wanting to find something new, or should I say more original. I've only got a vague idea of what I want and have to push forward little by little.

Thanks Jimmie, of course it helps to know the person.

Thanks Sandra. It was a nice day in the park. I could have done with a notice 2 Yuan to have your photo taken with the Englishman, queue here.

Hi crazy now we are back in the UK let's just relax and see what happens.
