Old woman in Saigon by Colombe  Cambourne

Currently unavailable for purchase

Pastel pencils (Stabilo & Derwent)
on Colourfix paper ( rose colour)

This woman wasn’t happy that I took a photo of her. She was sipping her tea in the street in Saigon when she noticed the camera. She then pulled a face at me before turning around and walking away. She was wearing the brightest orange coloured shoes I have ever seen…..

Cette petit dame n’était pas contente que je prenne sa photo. Elle était en train de boire son thé dans une rue de Saigon, quand elle remarqué l’appareil photo. Elle m’a fait une grimace avant de se retourner. En tout cas, elle avait de belles chaussures orange!!!

    E bé toi ! je reconnais la dame aux shoes oranges !!!… elle fait une tronche pas possible ici à cause de ta photo donc. Joli travail en tout cas
    Tu utilises de nouveaux pastels en crayons maintenant, ce n’est plus des craies ?
    Birdie, j’espère que tu vas en faire plein d’autres de ce que tu as pris là-bas et faire un photo-reportage en pastels

  • Eh bien non, j’ai toujours utilisé des pastels en crayons pour faire les petits détails et le reste je le fais avec les craies.
    C’est vrai qu’elle fait une “tronche” terrrrrrrible! Que je ris!

    Hee Hee – I wonder what she would say if she saw your amazing artwork on RB! I think it is a wonderful ‘character’ painting Colombe. You are becoming more and more proficient with this medium. I like the look of the rose coloured paper! Might have to see if I can find one. It would be great for ‘life drawing’.

  • Lynda, you wouldn’t believe it, but I told my art class about Colourfix paper and now they’re all using it for their pastel work….. See what you started? This rose colour is lovely, isn’t it? I think you’re right, it would be great for life drawing, must try it.
    Thank you warmly for your generous comment. (Must be getting cool in Victoria right now)
