Not sure why I waited until last Sunday to watch it. I knew it would be a wonderful film, and yes it was, but it was beyond my expectation. Actors were all very charming, I am a big fan of all of them – Colin Firth, Jefery Rush, Helena Bonham Carter (except for her role in Harry Potter series – too good that she’s too scary).
I discovered that I love drawing people. People as a subject is very tricky. Harder than landscape or flowers, in which you really don’t have to draw exactly as they are. You can add a petal or two, a house or 10 houses, and no one will notice. It’s easy to notice the difference between the picture and the model in case of portraits. But I still like it. I want to be able to do it relaxed and effortless. I succeeded a little bit with Helena on the right. Not with Colin.
I also realized that I love drawing on dark backgrounds with white pencils. I used to do that a lot while in highschool or in college, unintentionally. I used to draw the full moon on black piece of paper.
I'm loving your people drawings Meri – the one of Sean Connery yesterday was wonderful (so are these)!
I love your drawings! I like the white pencil on dark background too. You are really talented!
Thank you, both of you :) I will keep on practicing!
