Roz, this is marvelous! It reminds me a bit of one of my favorite illustrators, Louis Slobodkin.
I didn’t recognize the name so I had to google him. I don’t remember a lot of the titles but the Amiable Giant rang a bell. Lovely loose sketches. I need to look more at this. Thanks so much for mentioning him!
I love seeing Phyllis. Also at the bottom of the post was some images from 8 years ago. Pears. I was reminded of the little art journey I went on after seeing the pears back then. I must return to that journal and revisit the pears I drew, colored and painted….because of you.
Thank you for reading for 8 years! I’m so glad that the little “also read” bits at the bottom brought you back to a contemplation of pears and I’m heartened to read that I got you to sketch them. Go do some sketching right now, OK!?
Charming image, very emotional…
Thanks so much Beryl.
Roz, I love your loose lines that capture her arthritic hands and intent look! Thank you for posting your sketches even though you are struggling with your new glasses.
Truth is I’d rather draw and struggle with the seeing than not sketch, but it helps that it’s drawing Phyl. I’m glad you liked the loose lines. All my Fair stuff from my two days of sketching (Thurs. and today) are turning out pretty loose too! But I have loved every minute of it.
A beautiful, moving image – I love the truth of it.
Thanks Sheryl. I’m very happy to have time with Phyl.
I was just doing some wandering through your blog – actually looking at the ways you render hair! – and came across this. I immediately thought of how precious each drawing of Phyllis will be to you now. To Dick too. Hope you’re getting the same glorious sunshine we having at Little Bear Lake, Saskatchewan.
Yep, they are all precious to me, in the moment of execution and beyond. I know that filling 43 volumes with drawings of Dottie helped me say good bye when the time came. Drawing is a great way to gain perspective. Thanks for thinking of us.
