Artist's Description

“Elle n’avait pas les yeux en face des trous” : french expression to say =

Saying that a person “has no eyes opposite holes” means she does not see very clearly, for example because it is drunk or she has not slept enough. The origin of the term dates back to the seventeenth century, when it was said “to have eyes through” eyes as symbolizing the eye.

- Fifth series: back in July 2013 on the Sketch Paper 70g/m2 with pen Staedtler 0.1 (for the night) + pink, mostly yellow (for the day).
This fourth series is completed with drawings made during the hottest hours of the summer. I draw only “portraits”.
Unlike other drawings of this series, I searched for a less controlled more free drawing, “I let go of the hand”.
With the result color doesn’t seem useful to me.
