Bloody allegory...

A sample of what I did in "hostile" conditions... I mean, when the model (upon whom I have no control, being just one of the many sketchers...) took "ballet" postures... No comments...Of course, it's an acylic ink + watercolor on Strathomore 300 g.

This is very pretty and suggestive, Danu. What beautiful colors! And that girl drawing on the left is so good it's a pity we can't see more of her. Bravo!

Thanks, G! Some day, when the model will be a bore I will draw the portrets of the sketchers!

Though I do not understand what you mean, it seems you don't like ballet postures. And should that then be visible in that sketch? Should I perceive the hostility?

I can never see a thing. I thought that one of these days I ought to send you a donkey that I have drawn, but first I would have to ask you to try and imagine what a donkey drawn by me would look like.

It was when I had my first computer and discovered that on "Paint" you could draw with the mouse of the computer. So I did a donkey. Try to imagine it, and when you have finished imagining it, tell me. Then I'll send you the oeuvre itself.

A, when I said "hostile" environment (or something like that) I was refering mainly at the fact that I had no control over the postures and that kind of got on my nerves...) I was reacting at what I've perceived as artificial, affectée, excessively
"posed" of the model...

I think I can imagine what your donkey looks like...My daughter, when she was 7-8, played also with the mouse and "Paint" software... I still have them (her creations) somewhere in my files...

amice, nici nu-ti dai seama ce mult imi plac tablourile tale... e atita melancolie in ele, atita (auto)ironie, atita suferintza, deci atita luciditate si, in consecintza, atita dragoste (precum spunea Camil Petrescu in a sa "Ultima noapte de dragoste,...").
Sa-ti dea Cel de Sus sanatate si viata cit mai lunga, caci, cu cit pictezi mai mult, cu atit o faci mai bine.

Cantueso, I forget to answer your "why I moderate" question... Simply because IF NOT all "anonimous" comments will be spamed (I already told you about some smart real spamers...) So I "moderate"...

Multam fain, Ovidiu, si sa dea Dumnezeu sa castigi la loto marele lot si sa ma faci pictor de curte...ca tare bine mi-ar prinde un Mecena... chiar si unul mai miculutz...
