Wow, what a talent, girl. Can’t wait to see you!
Thanks, Judy. Can’t wait to see you, too!
Great figure studies, I love the line quality. So expressive!
Thank-you so much, Jeanine. I consider that high praise coming from you. I love line work so I guess it shows up a lot when I go to life drawing.
Thats the hardest thing I struggle with to teach my students, the quality of the line and its ability to animate and give life to the figure. They just love to contour all with the same pressure.
Yes, mine too. They think that the line acts more as an outline and sihouette until I have them do just cross contour and free up a little. I ask them to caress rather than puncture the surface of what they are feeling.
Acutely observed and wonderful lines.
Thank-you, June, for making the rounds through my pages. Line work is my favorite way to express myself.
You make it sound like I was doing you a favour – these are wonderful to look at so I thank you for putting them up here for us to see.
You are so kind, June. I am grateful to be sharing with all of you. I’m like a kid in a candy store looking at everyone’s creations. I’m new to the net and blogland. This initially started out as an assignment to familiarize myself with the web. My tutor for photoshop and everything computer is http://jaybastian.com/ I admire your creations so much, it’s hard not to be gracious.
These are so beautiful, thank you for sharing them.
Thanks Paintedbrush! I liked your wolves drawing!
oh i really like your work, the drawings are beautiful! I like the one with the elephant a lot.
And thank you for the comment on my little lady =)
Thank-you Lina. I enjoyed your drawings.
Hi, ‘Tom looking up’ has an Egon Shiele quality to it, especially around the legs, – are you aquainted with this Austrian Expressionist? – one of my favorite artists too. Now I shall have to write about him! lovely work Leslie!
Hi Lynda. Thank-you for your kind comment. Yes He was one of the first artists that caught my attention when I first started drawing in the 80′s. How can anyone not be intrigued by him? I do have to say that “Tom” is a good model to get a Schiele look going. Now, I have to go over to your blog and comment on that lovely Raphaela collage you did.
Thank-you, Adrusjala! I just dropped by your site and I think your photography is sooooooo good. Thank-you for making yourself known!
Great drawings very inspiring Blog On
I am glad you have created galleries like this so that we can see a range of your work. I love the sensitive line in your drawings.
Thank-you, Stephen. These things that I have put on these pages are extras and not on the main part of the blog. In the future, I may need to think of something else. Student page will change each semester.
I love your drawings! Very well done.
Thank-you, Jan, for your comment AND your visit!
I enjoy black-and-white sketches. Thanks for sharing these with us. Each one is interesting … Have pulled out my old Betty Edwards “Drawing on the Artist Within” to work with for awhile…
Happy days, Laslie. Thanks for your inspired and inspring blog.
I have not been spending much time with drawing and need to begin that when my Granddaughter starts full day school this fall. I will have more time. That said, I am always drawing to set images for paintings on paper, but it is not the same. Betty Edwards book was the inspiration for my drawing teacher’s course, years ago. Had she not taught me, I think my vision would be so much less! No wonder why I see somuch in what you share through your poetry!!!!!
