Redheaded model


A little experimenting with the PastelMat (from a few weeks ago). I at first did this sharper and clearer, but wasn't satisfied with it. So I took a tissue to the whole thing, intending to obliterate it, but I liked the out-of-focus soft look that resulted.






Squished and happy.

I'll be taking Rumi this week to an animal ophthalmologist (I hadn't known there was such a thing) to get an expert (and expensive) opinion on his continuing eye problems. (But don't worry, he's a ridiculously happy and thriving kitten in spite of it.)

Great job on this figure! Her lines are so elegantly beautiful. That style is great too. Reminds me of something David Larson Evans would paint. I've been bugging him to reveal how he creates that dreamy look and here you did it own your own.

Unusual (lately) to see a living breathing from you. Nice!

The out of focus is very appealing.
