I like that you have the structure of the face right as a foundation on which you weave those interesting patterns and colours - it is all so unexpected

It's very weird because the first thing that struck me when I saw this piece - apart from the breath-taking beauty of it- is that this lady actually looks quite like me! It's uncanny, check this out: [link] and [link]
Well? Of course that would be a prettier version of me with straighter hair but I don't think it's just wishful thinking on my part, something funky happened on this one, I tell you! :D
All jokes aside, you're one of my favorite artists on this website, if not one of my favorite artists period. Your style is amazing and in fact your gallery is such a cornucopia of sheer awesomeness it can be painful to watch for a wannabe artist such as myself. Makes me want to throw my canvases through a window in RAEG. (But I won't though, I'll try to be inspired rather than discouraged :])

Ha - it does - it looks like you - well please take be inspired always and strive to be the best you can be - I am looking forward to another year of drawing, and count myself lucky that I can do this as a living. But I need to improve all the time and keep pushing what I do further. Thanks for your encouragement too - a big help - Carne

What hooks me on your drawing, is the tension between the fine and the harsh lines.
Also the colors are very nice.

Thank you - I have just been writing about this on my blog and how I am trying to establish a balance between the figurative and the impulsive or automatic marks that occur in the work. Thanks
