    je reconnais le visage que tu m’avais montré chez toi…..quand est-ce que tu t’installes comme portraitiste ? Le ton du papier est tout à fait bien choisi pour faire ressortir ces tons en sienne, noir et blanc. Il va aller rejoindre la dame du Vietnam dans mes Fav….
    (Au fait, c’est quoi qu’il a dans son petit panier autour du cou ? juste par curiosité….)

  • Ecoute, moi je trouve que ça a l’air d’une saucisse de Strasbourg….

    Ce qui est de plus remarquable, c’est que tu sais reproduire des “tronches” dans le sens littéral !

  • Il est supposé avoir l’air menaçant! Mais il est ressorti coquin. Ha, ha, ha!!

    exsquisate Colombe…..great piece

  • Hi Adam. Thanks for your appreciation. I’m getting right back into my art at the moment, it took me a while after Corinne’s visit.
    Hope you’re well.

    Wow! This is a fantastic pastel!! There is a photographic exhibition on this week at the Nambucca Library of the people of the local Gumbaynggirr tribe- I am going this afternoon. I love this Colombe – to me you have captured the “lost” look in his eye that the tribal people have since we took over their country. Beautiful. xx

  • Merci Estelle for your lovely comment.
