Pastel of Another “Combing the Hair”

 

Hello Friends!

This is another rendition I did of one of the many  pastels Degas painted of women combing their hair. I like these works just as much as his ballerina paintings. I love how soft he could make them look but also put bold dark line work in certain places as well.

One of these days I am going to begin doing my own drawings from portraits of real people when I gain a little more confidence. I also know it is not “cheating” to trace just the main outlines of a face or body, because sometimes it is easier than eyeballing a photo to try to get the proportions correct.

In other news our daughter put up the Christmas tree for us today. So the living room is a little brighter now.

I went to physical therapy yesterday and was told I am progressing well. I am doing my exercises daily and still have my arm in the sling. I think it will be on for another week or two, but I can hardly wait for when I won’t need it anymore!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

 

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  3. Not too much longer for the sling to be gone. Then you can be a Degas girl and comb your hair like they do, with either hand.
