Figure drawing and twin talk

Really, I have been doing some drawing as well as travel, gardening and enjoying life. Friday I was able to attend the figure drawing gathering. These are two of the pieces from that session.

It's fun to start feeling good about my drawings. Think that the top face could use a bit more chin. Yet, the pieces are getting better in proportion and they look like real women!

I had traveled to Ohio to see the grandkids. My grandson is doing better with his asthma, but the family must now be more alert to any breathing problems and diligent with medicine. He was camera shy for this visit. The picture of the twins is not a great photo, but it means so much. This captured one of the rare times that I could hear "twin talk". They were having quite a discussion about a book. The bond that is forming between these sisters is so delightful.

Spring is here and it feels so good. May everyone have a glorious Easter (even if you must stay inside!).

A request. Would one of you computer savvy people please help me to post the sideshow of my mandalas. I created the movie in Picasa and as you can see I labeled the "gadget", but I can't seem to add the pictures. Thanks.

the sketches are beautiful, i like those arms&hands of the first drawing. You must make more freehand drawings.

So glad to have you post figure drawings. I sometimes feel as if it is only art students who do it anymore.

And the twins are soooo cute. You must have enjoyed them so much.

nice sketches! :) I love watching and hearing kids interact. They always teach you something new, or remind you of something you've forgotten long ago
