PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 11/18

Hi Everyone!

I know this is very early posting for Paint Party Friday however, if I don't do it now I will not have time later.  The next two days are busy busy busy.  I was able to spend some time in the art room this week working on a new painting that I will show next time. I am also working on leather boxes. I ordered some single shoulders that were on sale and are beautifully tanned. For now though Here are two drawings that I was able to create.  
The first is named "Intense"

 

This second one is "Dejection"
I have drawn this woman in the past. The life she shows on her face haunts me.





It is dark and stormy here and I can't get a good photo of this drawing.

A huge thanks to Kristen I and Eva for hosting Paint Party Friday, and to all the incredible artists who join in.

  3. The woman in 'Dejection' has suffered a lot in her life - it shows brilliantly in your drawing!
    Grey and rainy here too, our pure white snow almost melted...

  4. You've really captured the emotions in these faces. There is such a lot of 'past' showing on that second lady's face.

  25. If you were early I'm late, as always :)
    You can really draw ages - first one looks young and the second not so young but a lot of rough life behind....
    Have a creative week!

  26. Nicole, both of these drawings are great! The title for the 1st one is perfect. Intense. Yes. And the 2nd drawing is a bit haunting to me as well... beautiful work. I love that you dabble in everything - you're never boxed in to just one medium. Wishing you a wonderful week! xx

  31. I remember that 'haunting woman'...
    learning, learning - you're right. I try to learn proportions of face...I know the rules but it's difficult to follow the rules on the paper :) but I know I learn by doing. We all do :)
