  2. Annie B

    Another lovely gallery for our enjoyment. Thank you so much.

  3. lovely, reminds us how important hair is in portraiture.

    • Hi Anna, your comment is so appropriate. But I would to confess that the hair of a portrait is a field for make with more freedom, when some artist depicts this, don’t matter the technique, always is a motif to unburden. Your comment is so wise, and always I observe the hair on the gravatars of my followers. Thanks a million for this comment. xo

  4. Whaterhouse, Degas, among my favorite hair drawings. I have never really tried to draw hair, and it must quite difficult. Best Regards!

    • Oh Carmen, you have chosen to appear here, welcome. Always is a pleasure. You let your opinion and I agree with you. Likely Degas glanced to the nape of some ballerina, is a drawing accurate and so delicate. It also could be a foreground of actress Tippi Hedren, of any Hitchcock’s movie. I’m a little astonished, because I thought your election would to mention the work of the anonymous author of 18th century, this of the askance look (excuse me, I’m kidding). Thanks a million, for this blogger each comment, is like a gold nugget. xo.

  5. I love your elections of paintings and your own works. I would like to know if you have a twitter to follow you and share your blog.

    • Hello Clara, I’m sorry because my twitter account is inactive. But I hope the service of wordpress will alert you every entry, I’m wont to post one time a week. Your comment and words are so estimated. I want to tell you that I’m spanish, if you want you can to change this language. A warm hug. See you soon! 😉

      • Hola,…:
        Gracias por la confianza de decirme que eras español. Tu ingles es excelente y aunque me di cuenta que entrabas a mi blog desde España, mi espíritu novelesco me llevó a pensar que eras algún inglés retirado en el calor español. Uno es lo que es. Me gusta mucho tu trabajo y en la medida en que puedo siempre trato de tomarme un tiempo para revisar tus posts semanales. Igualmente, aunque no tengas tuiter te comento que comparto tus trabajos y espero que eso ayude a que lo conozca más gente. Aprovecho para darte las gracias por tus “me gusta” en mis pequeños agarres a la vida.
        Saludos,
        Clara
        Nota: veo que cuidas mucho tu privacidad, si prefieres mantener este post sin publicar, por aquello de revelar que eres español, por mi esta bien. Aunque confieso que es algo raro llamar a alguien, que no sea Luke Skywalker, sketchuniverse (lol).
        Otro abrazo.

      • Hola Clara, un millón de gracias por tu comentario y lealtad a los dibujos. Un abrazo. 😉

  6. Hola, creo que cometí una indiscreción con mi post público. Había visto que los revisabas antes de que se colocarán en tu página. Por favor, bórralo y disculpa cualquier inconveniente o exceso de confianza. Agradezco mucho la tuya. Muchos saludos, Clara

    • No por favor, no ha habido ninguna indiscreción. Agradezco mucho los comentarios, y esto es un blog precisamente para la intercomunicación de los usuarios. ¡Que pases un bonito día!

  7. Hair look so much more expressive when use sketch it.

    • Just the opposite of stereotype. In my opinion the reality shows daily that the strength belongs to women. . But that is not better or worst. Simply just that’s so. 😀

    • Dear Georgia, your words demonstrate you have skills about the depiction of hair. Through the strokes of a paintbrush or a pencil, there is always an area to the artist could to express more loosely his manner and then the resulting effect is more creative. When I’m working among a lot of lines I often remember that I have to comb all these to give the meaning to the composition. I don’t know if I explain so well, but thanks so much for you comment. xoxo.

  8. John William portraits is very poignant

    • Oh yes, you have a very good taste. The inclination of this profile, without explaining the rest of the body of the girl, is enough innovative, and the work has more than hundred years. The effect has a great sensuality, the author depicted the ear, and this detail and the shadows of her neck allows acquire depth to this drawing. Her pensive gaze is magnetizing us. Oh Krys, thanks a lot for your comment and have a funny weekend. xoxo

  9. Fantástico (!)

    Perfecto para un día como hoy. Un abrazo, grande como tú.

    • Buenísimos días, pero ¿quieres decir que te vas aplicar el modelo del dibujante Powell Frith, W. el de la quinta imagen? (bromeo), gracias por acordarte de este rincón. Un sentido abrazo.

  10. Jajajaja

    Te contaré un secreto: “adoro dibujar’, a pesar de que lo hago fatal.

    Un placer acordarme y visitar tan estupendo, placentero… Rincón.
