    • Dear Daniela, you really discover the purpose of this blog: to show through history, through geography and through different personalities, all the different ways of sketching any subject. Your appreciation is accurate and exquisite. Thank you very much for your comment. You have a good day ❤

  2. Absolutely gorgeous and some look like me! I should pose. XO

    • Dear Dievca, of course you should pose. I’m sure you would be an excellent model. Every woman has her own beauty but at the same time you all have things in common. The important thing is that who draws knows how to represent that.
      Thank you very much for your sincere and friendly comment. Have a nice day. ❤

      • I like the idea of the ultimate ability to….umm….”photoshop”/correct the sense of the image. Heh, heh, heh. XO

      • Hi, Dievca! If you want my opinion, I’m sure your personal look is more alluring without photographic retouches. I have a lot of experience with Photoshop. All the drawings that I publish in this blog, have touch up, sometimes even had to remove some watermark of some museum or another commercial brand from a drawing. If you want I retouch some picture for you, send it to me. Well dear, thanks so much for your kind talking. XOXO

      • Thank you – no one has sketched me. I was teasing about the history of artists being generous in ret0uching/recreating their not so beautiful/handsome patrons.
        😀

      • Ha,ha… I like what is in your mind. I hate these patrons. I like real women and not the incredible ones. Thank you, honey.

    • Dear Francesca, of the many years that I spent drawing nudes to the natural I remember some poses that were more difficult and this one of Van Dyck, could be one of them. This is complicated, but also lends itself to representing a good ‘chiaroscuro’. Here the artist does not neglect the details of the expression of the face of the model or delicate hands. I am delighted that you always leave your opinion. It is a gift for this blog. Thank you very much and have a nice day ❤

  3. Another wonderful selection. A celebration of the female body! My favourite is the Pissarro, such a fantastic drawing!

    • Aw Elisabeth, what a good choice. This great drawing not only defines a bucolic scene but also walks between figuration and abstraction. Sometimes it is interesting to look at a work through a mirror. Turn our vision 180º horizontally or vertically, to see it without any prejudice and no matter what the motive represents, to appreciate how it is made and to know what it was that interested the artist. Here the women’s hair, the foliage of the trees, the weeds and the grass, are composed of very delicate strokes that convey sensitivity. A million thanks for your clever comment. Have a nice day ❤
