    I made a painting of Doutzen Kroes, our Dutch Supermodel. I used mainly crayons this time.....

    well done. add me to the list of people who would like to see how you get those smooth skin tones... like a work in progress or script perhaps? that would be nice. great job on the figure and the details.

    An amazing painting with crayons...and I have to agree with Gemini...almost photo real...great job
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thanks....!!
    And I tried to make it not look like a Photo haha... I did not draw every hair separately like I normally do, and I did dot detail the eyes like I normally do....and much more details I tried to not leave out. But to me it looks a little bit like airbrushing and the frontpages of the Avant Garde Magazin about 25 years ago.....

    But I am working on a way to show you all how I did this with crayons.... and I'll post the link here....

    I have been drawing a lot with crayons lately....

    No doubt dutch ladies are very beautiful creatures who often keep their charm at any age, otherwise I could hardly believe so much art could be produced in the centuries in Holland and in the Flemish country.
    This is an outstandingly neat and fascinating painting and a curiosity, considering that it is a nice lady portrait by another nice lady.
