L'inconnue by Colombe  Cambourne

Currently unavailable for purchase

Pastels on very plain cartridge paper – A4

She is another image from the newspaper. I don’t know who she is or what she does because the article was missing. I imagine her to be a singer, maybe Jazz or Soul. What do you think?

Elle est une autre image trouvée dans un journal. Je ne sais pas qui elle est car l’article est perdu. J’imagine qu’elle est chanteuse, peut-être de Jazz ou bien de Soul. Qu’en dites-vous?

    Singer or not, she’s beautiful and you painted her so well, Colombe.

  • Thank you!
    She was a lot of fun to do.

    Hey Bird, les couleurs sont super bien choisies, elles se fondent tout à fait pour figurer la peau. J’adore la pose et le regard tellement vivant (et cheeky) qu’on dirait qu’elle va remuer les yeux…bravo aussi pour ta patience avec les dreads et pour les mains, chapeau ! ….et on attend qu’elle reprenne son souffle pour nous chanter quelque chose. Tu maîtrises très bien ce genre, petit chat !

  • Ce sont les couleurs du fond qui lui ont fait ressortir les yeux, avant, je n’avais pas remarqué qu’ils étaient si grands… Les dreads ont pris 2 secondes! Yeeeha!

    Beautiful work Colombe , you are a very talented family x

  • Irene, you know, there were a few artists in the family (and on both sides). One in particular who actually made a living from his art. He was Dad (below) ‘s brother. I don’t know if it helps Corinne & I, but we just enjoy what we’re doing. Thank you for your comment!

    Chaque millimètre de ce portrait est d’une vérité éclatante !!! Quelle finesse partout, que ce soit les yeux, les mains, si difficiles à travailler, les tresses et tout…et tout quoi. Magnifique.

  • Hey Papa, c’est super que tu m’envoies un message!
    Ce que tu dis est très gentil, merci Maniague. Pour une fois, je l’ai faite très vite et en ajoutant les couleurs du fond, ça lui fait bien ressortir la couleur de la peau…

    You have really captured a ‘naughty’ look here. Her eyes are wonderful as is the way you have painted her hands. Very extressive.
    You should never do anything on bad paper, your work is too valuable for that!

  • Ha, ha, Val you should see all the stuff I don’t show because it’s “dog’s breakfast” as Annie would say… Thank you for your wonderful comment

    She is great Colo…I especially like her hands. Do you do a lot of blending? You have captured such a saucy look in her face…I would say jazz! xx :))

  • Hi Estelle, yes I do a lot of blending, I love it and I do it with everything (except watercolours of course). Pastels and oils are perfect for finger blending, it’s very satisfying. About the hands: it’s fluke……
