Dreaming





Dreaming


These are sketches of “SA” from yesterday morning. These drawing sessions with models interspersed through the week are intended as escapes from projects I am working on, and as continued practice drawing the figure, to hopefully improve some of these projects.
Yet the islands, one of my projects, manages to show itself, anyway.
1st: 12”x 9” fountain pen, oil sanguine and chalk on toned paper
2nd: 24”x 18” oil sanguine on toneless paper

  1. I use wonderful a lot in my daily speech as I like the word.
    And very often my response to anything I like is "wonderful'
    Wonderful applies very aptly here ...
    You are very gifted ...

  2. So glad you included the Islands here...as she dreams, so she appears there.
    It is inevitable that her dreams re-connect her to that ancient history of this magical place that is so real!
    Yes, I totally agree with Margie...WONDERFUL...:)

    1. It was inevitable as soon as she posed on the stage, which became immediately an islands shore. The artist on the opposite side became the horizon and other islands from the past beyond.
      Where I’m at these days☺
      Thank you

  3. I love both but the first one will be more rested, the second one is hanging in a semi- uncomfortable position she would wake up very sore, but you'll make sure it won't happen, both fantastic figures, in their own right still I have a bit more affinity for the first one...maybe it's the tone....ah what am i saying, you know why, always The Islands of Solitudes....Bravo, bravo, bravo

    1. I have to agree, I go to the first one too. the second was actually sketched first, before she totally relaxed and fell into the dream on the island’s shore.
      Thank you
