Elizabeth those two drawings are real nice.

The figure is fantastic can I call you maestro?
Is that conte?

Elizabeth Torak said...

The figure is conte on a thick Fabriano Ingres paper. If you call me maestro I'll probably be so self conscious that I will never draw well again, but thanks for the thought.

That really is one fine drawing.
The way you turn the form is very good. It's very subtle.

Nice figure, Lizzie!

Hi Elizabeth,

The figure is quite lovely! Such a graceful feel, wonderful gesture....nice volume and weight! Brava!

Sorry it has taken me a bit to respond to your comment on my blog. I studied the DuMond palette with John P Osborne at the RAI in NJ. Osborne's principle teachers were Alban Albert and Arthur Maynard, both of who studied under Frank Vincent DuMond. The DuMond palette is wonderful, no? :) Just love it.
