Stef, this one is great, it s amazing that just with a line and few colours you can say so many things.

Matt J said...

You're drinking A LOT these days Stef!
This is one of my FAVOURITE drawings of yours - sublime colours too - EVERY Frenchman over the age of 40 has a nose that colour!

It looks exactly like him!!! You've got such a great talent to get the essence of a character. I love it

Stef said...

- Muchas gracias Pablo.

-Merci Monsieur Jones, I've never been so busy and I manage to drink more than ever.
Watch your nose, yours will be like that soon if you try our wines too much.

-Thanks Shawnee.

-Merci mon Freddy!

willborough said...

That's a great expression. And the color combination of the paper and the bold patches of skintones really work well. I've been really enjoying checking out your sketches. You combine soldid draughtmansship with a suble sense of design. Thanks!

It's wonderful how much depth you achieve as you lay in the transparencies. As always, wonderful sketch.

Hope you are doing well.

The colour breaks on the transparencies are a fine touch on an already fine sketch. The break down the middle is perfect.

Stef said...

- Thank you very much Willborough, I really appreciate.

-Hey Smook! where have you been? Everything is fine, thank you.

- I'm ready Oscar.

- Thank you very much Dee!

- Thanks Jampix.

- Exactly Mr Jones.

- Thank you Doodlers! I'm still looking at your beautiful watercolours, beauties!

Smook said...

Still here Stef, still here and always dropping by to see what's new with you. Been busy working on a new series and getting adjusted to it.

P.S: Love the Brighton sketches too.
