    I loved the Rilke sketch, the Léger, and de la Tour, and Lautrec, otherwise . . . cosìcosì.

  2. That’s very fine detailing! What medium do you work with? Charcoal, crayons or acrylic colors?

    • I like to work with crayons. As a unique pencil, I prefer the black one between these, because it has a bit of wax, and for me is not so quick as a graphite one. And sometimes I want to control that the speed to draw were not so quick and with a larger scale of tones. I prefer oil colours than acrylics, but these last are more practical. Charcoal is wonderful, I love so much but as a so raw stuff, only is suitable when someone has so clear what he wants to express. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes dear ❤
