Red Haired Woman in Blue Coat

 Wow, I did a "knit woman" but spiced it up with some originality. I made her quite a bit heavier than the model in the magazine. Gave her a larger sized coat. And added background and foreground out of my own little head! Perhaps these are the first steps to "doing my own things" with this form.
I really like her hair.

    1. Oh Lisa, that is the best compliment I could possibly get!
      Funny too, as when I got done I realized she actually looks like someone I met recently.

  3. Very nice. Yes it IS the first steps to doing your own thing. You have to learn the basics before you can move on to your own thing and you are learning them very well. Fun seeing your growth here. The Lady in Blue looks a bit chilly. :)

    1. Cris you are such a good and reassuring teacher. Thank you so much. Yes, she is cold, and that's why she is so warmly bundled up. The wind is blowing quite fiercely as you can see by her wonderful red hair blowing in the wind.

  4. I like the colors in this sketch. And your restaurant sketches are always so interesting. You remind me of Andrea in Paris and her sketches of people on the train.
