    L:ove these 2 drawings Donna, this is the type of work i can look at for hours… i love the dark areas, the shading, tones are striking and with the yellow paper the contrast is perfect… If i could favourite these 10 times I would!

    Youre welcome donna, thank you for drawing them! I adore her quizzical expression, the furled eyebrow and the leg tucked under… also the perfect balance of where the yellow shows through on the paper. There is more emotion in this little sketch than Ive seen in a hundred photos on RB… man this is good!

    So much meaning showing in the eyes. Magnificently strong visual with the beautiful darks.

    I have nothing to add in words. I just keep looking at it knowingly. Your work is touching in some ways, whimsical in others and sometimes “just” a scene from a moment in time but it is always captivating and well orchestrated. Your gallery is exceptional.

    this one and others of this style could be great just in black on a white shirt. a bit of fiddling but would be good.
