Dangar Island Writers' Workshop

We spent the day at a writers' workshop today. The Poet showcased a new style of poem that he is working on. Me ... I draw.

This writer was not asleep as it appears in my drawing. The text that she was following was sitting on her lap. She has a wonderful, interesting face that shows her life experience well.

..."shows her life experience well." I love that phrase. Lovely drawing, did she mind you sketching her?

Without seeing her I bet it is a match. :-)

Great drawing - lots of character and ...Dangar Island - what a magic place for inspiration! (I have a favourite photo I took on Dangar Island - a rickety old gate with a "Beware of the Rabbit" sign.)

This is so clearly a very particular, specific person. I'm so afraid of drawing people, but this is inspiring.

"Life experience" faces are indeed great to draw...great faces make great portraits....hence I won't be doing any self portraits. Nice job.

Your respect for her really comes through in the drawing. Lovely work, Robyn.

You did a nice job of catching the lady's face without overworking it -- I always do too many wrinkles, er, I mean, EXPERIENCES when drawing an "interesting" face, and end up with a mess.
