21cm x 29,7cm or 8,5 in x 11.75 Sennelier Oil Pastels


  1. What truly beautiful colors we have in this unusual drawing of the Woman artist. There is a strong sense of line both as description and ornament. This is such a wonderfully charming figure, and we the viewer can so joyously and intimately participate in the artist's gaze in the mirror and the lovely vision she draws. How lovely are the pantaloons and the naked feet that so beautifully extend beyond. Charming, charming, charming.

  2. Oh, how could I forget to mention the glorious gray of the paper with its elegantly finger-smeared shadows and how this as background so perfectly holds our artist who is rendered in the pitch perfect palette of lemon yellows, deep wine reds, and Persian blues!
