I had to laugh when reading your words about working from life. I had the exact same thoughts in my life drawing sessions earlier this week! Wonderful, and unique work, Nora!
I'm glad you rise to the challenge. It's a lovely work -- the expression is very compelling and I love the colors. I think you've captured a sense of contemplation and a bit of timeless beauty.
Bonita acuarela Nora, esas aguadas son muy tuyas,enhorabuena
Hermosa y delicada acuarela!!!
That's a very important statement: the challenge doesn't get easier, it just changes. I think that's because you are challenging yourself to go farther and hone new skills with each portrait you paint. This one is wonderful. I like the way you used color to help tell her story and show her personality.
Olá Nora!Como é habitual os teus trabalhos são muito característicos: há a cor que usas de forma abundante e maravilhosa! Um abraço.M. Emília

But you do such a wonderful job. Look at how you carried the bits of orange throughout the painting. And look at those eyes. Beautiful
