Missing 7

Valentina

The first thing that grabbed me about Valentina was her piercing blue-grey eyes.  She seems formidable, even within the restrictions of old age.

The second drawing I did bears more of a physical resemblance, but the first one captures more of her spirit to me.

The painting is an experiment–it doesn’t look like her at all, but I think it has its charms.  I haven’t been painting much lately; I’m hoping for a more regular work schedule to settle in the next few weeks and give me the time and psychic space to get back to it.

    The first one is Braque-esque, second one looks very realistic but above all I love the painting. It has a fauve look, bold strokes, her eyes really pop and I love the sketching you did over it. More painting!
