...a simple pencildrawing,my birthdaygift to Brian's mum,Aud,for her 75th birthday It was not a very easy job,to draw this,I had as reference a very old photography,quite blurry,she is on a ship,but I had to invent some kind of background,...not the best of my worksbut I did it with all my
Fantastic work Dear Flori and a wonderful gift. The face has a lot of character, bright and full of life. While its colouration creates an antique feel to the artwork. I am sure Brian’s mother will love it
...thank You so much,my dearest Jocelyne!...yes,of course it was Aud,when she was very young...about 5à years ago,I think...and the very first time ,Brianshowed me this little photo of his mother,I said to myself,she is so beautiful,(well,she still is,though her 75 years,now,)one day I will draw her,and though the job was not easy because of the quality of the photo,it was so easy to draw with my emotion,sbecause I love her very much,as I mentioned further up,and she has the same eyes and expression as Brian... PS:How are you,my Dear?Hope everything is fine!
It looks really marvelous this "simple pencildrawing" as you call it , dearest sis !!! The details are stunning, especially on the sea....great job on portraying and capturing the pose....the folds of the dress are !!! Lights and darks are well done !!! Such a wonderful birthdaygift coming from you and from the heart !!!
You're welcome! Yes, it's long since I don't last watch my deviations, I've got up to 6000 so... much work. I've just been into to much work, studies, and even personal problems, so I couldn't find the time to draw or to watch dA But now I'll try to slowly come back! I hope I can soon watch all your new art! Hope you're doing well!
I also had the pleasure of seeing this take it's form, and it turned out more amazing then I would imagine at first. You really came up with the most perfect background for this portrait. And the resemblence from the old photo is spot on, so no worries about that either. And I love how you gave it a touch of oldish yellow/sepia color here. That was a great idea too! Wonderful work, ma Cherie!
