Neighbours

mixed media
EDM 265 -Draw your neighbour.
Portraits aren't really my thing, it's so hard to get a likeness and I really admire those artists who can.  So here's my 'ex' neighbour and good friend Nadia.  I don't have any real neighbours any more, mostly just weekenders, but Nadia was willing to pose and she was pleased with her 'likeness'.

I would also like to express my sadness at the death of Patti Gregory,  wife of Danny Gregory,  the inspiration behind the drawing group 'Every Day Matters'.  Sincere condolences to Danny and his son Jack.
Danny is right every day DOES matter.

Now that's clever - get a friend to hide behind her hair! It's a lovely sketch, Cathy - I can see why your friend would be pleased with it.

I echo your sentiment re Patti Gregory. x
