My Travelling Tree Pose

I had a lovely email this morning from a lady that bought my painting The Tree Pose to hang in her sister's yoga studio.
The Core Balance Yoga Center can be found HERE.

I love to hear where my paintings end up and this is particularly exciting for me because it's travelled all the way from the UK to Missouri!

Before my very busy weekend began, I had a nice life drawing session friday morning. The reddish brown drawings are using an Inktense pencil with a little bit of water for the shading. I had to be a bit braver using that because once it's there you can't rub it out! I did a couple of quick studies in black ink too at the end of the session.
I like the way these drawings have more strength than the pencil ones, what do you think?

Thanks Cori, I like that, a time to be bold and a time to be delicate. A bit like my day today actually!

How great to hear where your lovely art ended up! And all of these sketches are wonderful. Can't believe how well you capture that hand in the last pic!

I think the brown inktense drawings have a warmth and life to them.

I love your tree pose painting. I especially like the way the cat has a tail warmer & the tree a trunk warmer to match the girls leg warmers. Fab!
