This is so beautiful and delicate. I love it. Instead of capturing the exact form of a women, you just captured the mere essence. It's very abstract and lovely!

Jasmine "conte" is a term I use for the earth coloured hard chalks used by old masters and made today by Conte
sanguine, bistre etc - from pale orange browns to near black brown...
always a natural for figure drawing
by the by I like your figure photos and wish you were in range to model for me!

Martha looks pious, devout, diffident and as ~nnicc said 15 hours ago " I think it is already perfect this way" I could't agree more!

Your works will never cease to amaze me !
