A recent drawing


Just a nude in burnt omber, drawn recently… a 10 minutes sketch which I will, maybe, re-work into a painting… The model, though not very gracious (a common, sullen face and quite large) had a beautiful skin quality, nice, very fine grain, very pale, making the light almost like a haze around her.

  1. A wonderful painting Danu, what a light on her skin!
    It must be because you are a great painter, but I find this model very gracious, the position of the body and of the head, the proportions, the curves… I really wonder why you say she was not?

  2. I will show you, miki. I will send you soon a email with my “point”… Give me a couple of days… I really don’t know if I am a great painter (I know you are one; and I’m not saying it just to return you compliment… I can recognise one when I see one…) but I try to do my thing… even if I am a lot more lazy and without the will to do more and to succeed… Probably I would be happy even in a prison cell if they let me have some paper and some colors… I consider me very lucky for that.

  3. Not only the light ON her skin but the skin itself–you’ve got her shapes but also the look of push-in-able flesh. Very nice.

    Eva, o atit de periculoasa superbie!

  6. As vrea io! Renoir! hehehehe! Cat priveste superbia, crede-ma pe cuvant, Ovidiu, modelul asta (cel de mai sus fiind unicul desen din 12-13 care mi-a iesit) nu era asa de suberbiu… o sforicica ii atarna din pasarica (puah!), pe bune… si avea o mutra de muiere ursuza viitoare… dar pielea avea un fel de calitate cu halou…Ma bucur sa te revad pe icisha…

    Dane, “delicatetzea” sa de muiere din desen arata destul de bine din spate (vorba aia: “din spate liceu, din fatza… muzeu”). Si apoi, nu ne refeream, ovidiu si cu mine, in primul rind la muierea ca atare, ci la modul in care ai reusit sa redai feminitatea; cit despre Renoir, ramine cum am stabilit – atit tu, cit si eu, avem partea noastra din dreptate…

  8. Mai Mihail, mai! Ovidiu si cu tine facetzi cum facetzi si avetzi dreptate! Si sa stii ca pe aici gasesti din plin muieri cu spatele liceu si mutra muzeu! Cred ca sunt ramasitze din vremea feminismului… Te uitzi din sparte, fusta scurta, picioruse, coafura de fetitza… Te uitzi din fatza, Dumnezeule! itzi zici, bine ca n-am fluierat… Te rog continua sa-l pomenesti pe batranul si intzeleptul (da, i-am citit scrisori si scrieri despre arta: tipul nu parea dar avea doxa! mai mult, era realmente intzelept…) Renoir, pomeneste-l cat mai des in aceeasi fraza cu mine… Ma unge la suflet… Pe cine sa pomenesc in aceeasi fraza cu tine? Pe Hemingway? Dostoievski?

    DaNu_le, pe noi…, pe cei din Romanica sa ne pomenesti, nu foarte des, insa de bine; chiar si tie o sa-ti prinda bine…
