This is my favorite of your figures. I'm not always crazy about your color choices. Please don't take that the wrong way, it's a personal opinion and I have a long way to go to learn about color. It is one of my most difficult struggles. Having said that, the color can't take anything away from this piece and it's just beautiful. Good job.

I love chalks, because I know that almost always the hands of the artist touched it.
Why? I don't know, maybe a romanticism that I maintain from my days of being a member of romatic awe.

Thanks. I'm partial to earthy tones in my color work. If it turns out my graphite pieces have a more natural appeal, good on ya.
Thanks for your knowlegeable input.

Yeah, the personal touch. Not the art at distance that a brush stroke makes. Which sounds odd, but when you touch something with your hands it imparts a softness, a spirit, that distance can't achieve. Why I don't like to make what I make on CNC and prefer to do it by hand, I suppose.

Very good. Is this part of a series?
