You have an interesting approach to cross hatching. This particular portrait feels almost like it wants to turn into a cubist painting.

I like it Sandra, it has character . Have you thought about working with this similar technique but with a large flat brush in oils and just make one-stroke with many squares and rectangles creating the image ? That might look quite interesting I can imagine.

Hello There .Sascha... . but if I was to do that , then that would be your style and not my style ...Because I see your painting as very much like that and theres nothing wrong with that ...but I am what I am my dear Man ...very Unique ~Me, I love your Way of working the Paint brush you have things I admire very much and I know you think that of me ...am sorry Ive been slack not Looking in on you of Late , Please forgive me

Love that you see character ... I felt it has the side of my daughter showing one~one but a Mother ever really sees ....

Super work, Sandra. Intriguing lighting in this, including intriguing hatching. I wonder if the top lobe of her ear is tad higher? Or perhaps am not able to see it well given that it is in shadow.

Hey Sandra, I love, love, love how you handled her lips! Also this kind of hatching shows planes very well. all in all a telling portrait.

I think you have captured something of the inner person here Sandra, and created a strong drawing with your expressive lines and sense of light.

Fascinating drawing, Sandra. Her lines are at once structural and yet organic. Very unusual. --Aurelio

Love to hear that you would say that Kiran ,--I set her up and with a black out backdrop and then got my spot lighting which are from my ceiling and surrounding wall spot lighting focused on her , i let her sit how she wanted to hold her head this was the end result, about a 2 pushing 3 hour Life study it could of been long but she wouldnt stop moving but i was happy as said , the ear lobe is there but maybe I just didnt get that area worked enough...


tHANKS mR dEScRaTES ~ pAINTING to follow !!

Wanda they are nice Lips arnt they , I seem to be getting somewhere with some things IF its telling something then I created something here thats still grabbing for all its Faults ... thankyou for the fab comment girl!

Well Aurelio, I think thats due to my unusual self and my thinking outside the box here , I wanted to get her down fairly fast... so I basically drew a Gestural shape of her face pulling it in as I went but that doesnt mean theres things that are not right , cause there Probs , the eyes are a pretty good size and match but the space between them is not enough .. bridge of the nose needs work and its to small maybe a tad to long ..Yep - all these little things add up to show that Im getting closer but that in turn tells me slow down and stop and think more ))) , its not perfect but then Ive a model that thinks she can move when ever .. for the most part I am happy to of drawn her from life and got a very foscused feel to her at least ~cheers to you all for such great comments
