    Absolutely wonderful work , a beautifullPastel painting x

  • Oh Irene, you’re always the first one off the mark…. that’s lovely!
    I think the uploading process has smoothed out her face a bit, the actual painting is a lot more rough around the edges!!!!

    Oups ! j’ai failli – l’ouvrant – me cogner à cette dame tellement elle semble vivante !!
    Oh veines du cou et la couleur du visage, et l’expression aussi ! on voit même qu’elle a les dents gâtées…c’est fou ! le motif de sa tenue aussi, bien travaillé…
    Le fond que tu as choisi s’accorde très bien au costume…Bird, tu m’épates à chaque pastel

  • Elle a une bonne bouille, pas vrai? On a envie de l’embrasser.
    Thank you my loyal sister, you’re always saying really nice things…..
