Girl with Dark Eyes

And now I have found enough courage and audacity to come to the foot of the highest mountain in my art study landscape: portraits. Human faces, face expression, men's and women's faces, aging faces, emotions, the list is endless, the mounting is Everest high.
Fast sketch in my sketchbook (I feel best when do work in one session, without interruption in mood and paint flow).
Feels strange to see that somebody unknown starts looking at you from the sketchbook page..

In Haze

18x25cm, Eraser on toned paper
That was interesting! My first experience with drawing with kneaded eraser (soft and obedient kind of graphite eraser) on the paper toned with pencil graphite dust. I had to pull light from the dark background.

Flowers Bouquet

40x60cm, Watercolor and Pastel
Drawing is the sort of magic. Drawing flowers  is the magic doubled.

Fast sketches of our closest relatives. Though I'd prefer cats to be our great-grandparents.. Maybe then the world would not be that crazy.
PS. I do not believe in Darwin's evolution theory.
