inktober ’16

11.01.2016

This year I participated in Inktober, and made one illustration out of ink every day for the month of October. It had been a while since I’d spent much time drawing, and I enjoyed it so much that I’m going to be sure to keep the momentum going beyond this month.

Day 1: I really wanted to draw the scene in a Nan Goldin photo I saw at the MoMA.

    bonjour ,
    peintre de métier et portraitiste ( musée des troupes de marine, Fréjus )
    j’ai été surprise par l’expression de vos dessins , particulièrement dans vos portraits qui prennent vie en quelques coups de crayons , bravo ! la multitude de détail est impressionnante , elle contraste avec de grande zone qui en sont dépourvus , ce qui donne à vos oeuvres un caractère énigmatique ..
    j’adore aussi les courbes sensuelles de vos végétaux ,
    vous êtes très jeune et beaucoup de talent et d’imagination , il y a quelque chose de spécial dans vos créations , je vous félicite et vous souhaite bonne continuation !
