“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time"
"El arte nos permite encontrarnos y perdernos al mismo tiempo" ~Thomas Merton
Wow, thank you, Martine. You paint to make others see, to make others feel, and your comment makes me feel on top of the world!
Wonderful skin tones! It looks like you were working from a model, ie not photo. True?
Someone is robbing her house...and it doesn't look like she is going to wake up soon! Her facial expression is so placid and deeply mellow. I can almost hear here snoring. Very beautiful painting.
She is out cold, Miguel, that's true. I'm honored that you felt it was beautiful. Thank you.
Thank you, Marjie. This is from a sketch during a life drawing class that I attended. I am working on skin tones and palettes to achieve realistic color, but it has been frustrating. I tend to make everyone redder than they are and her face is very chalky, but I learn, we learn.....we paint.
