"Kimberly" 18x24 inches 46x60cm Conte on manila-paper
Sketch done from life models, once week in our Studio Village Group.
Those chosen ones will be serving well for future paintings during the long days of winter, for now is camping whith sessions of plain air and lots of exercises, taken care of our garden and house, enjoying life.



Yo quisiera bien tomar ventaja de estos acertados trabajos y convertirlos de inmediato en pinturas; ocurre que, también creo que la vida es un juego de tira y afloja, en este momento es tiempo de aflojar, disfrutar, contemplar, respirar el aire de los bosques, ver como la luz se escure entre los árboles al caer de la tarde, sorprender las rocas bañadas de los colores que el atardecer nos regala, descansar la noche bajo las estrellas del aire libre, para temprano sorprenderse de luces que de otra manera la imaginación no pudiera inventar, y si somos afortunados quizás, tentar de manejar el tiempo necesario para crear un pequeño boceto al fresco que si no… otra vez será.

I hope she's chosen to be developed into a painting. Your depiction of her is lovely. I see elegance, sensuality and longing.

You're very gifted.

I could not understand what you have written but I certainly agree that this is a splendid painting. Thanks so much for posting it here. The eyes of the girl speak so much. Thanks for this inspiration.

Gilberto, preciosa pintura con técnica Conte y preciosa la modelo.
Me gusta mucho tu estilo de pintar las figuras. Eres un maestro!
También al leer tu artículo te noto romántico, cuando hablas de arboles, luz, atrdeceres...en fin, que hay que respirar y aprovechar esas maravillas que nos rodean!
Estoy de acuerdo contigo!
Un fuerte abrazo.

I long for the winter. Wonder how the paintings will look like. The sketch looks great.

Vicente Herrero said...

!Pero Gilberto!, por que quieres convertir en pintura este buen trabajo.
¿Acaso crees que tiene menos valor?
"Kimberly" es una obra digna de un gran artista.
Un abrazo y mis congratulaciones.

Susan;
You are very generous in your comment my dear and in that department, I do, consider my self very gifted.

Thanks.

Vinayak;
Is not art the universal language of beauty? Is not art the ability to convey fillings by the simple action of seeing? If it is so, your comment is a greater gif for an up coming artist like I believe I am.
Many thanks.

Joshemari
Viniendo de ti el comentario es corte de rabo y oreja, y eso aunque no sea legal allá por tus lugares lo acepto con humildad y un granito de duda ya que accidentes pasan, me entiendes.
Romántico? Si. Esa fue la única fortuna que pude salvar de mis anos jóvenes en mi muy querida patria
Abrazo por abrazo.

Nora;
You are as gifted as strong and I am not worthiest to use your attention in this moment of your life for that reason alone I have to humble bow of your beautiful comment.

Jesús;
Gracias, y estas en lo cierto por lo que a la modelo se refiere.

Dick:
I will do my best when the time comes, but you now my friend often god sketches are not the best recommendations for god finished work. Perhaps the ticket is, to start a fresh in a new approach using that drawing as inspirational objet only.

Fantástico boceto Gilberto. Has conseguido captar la expresión apacible de la modelo. Creo que merece la pena que el boceto pase a ser obra.
Un abrazo

Giberto! It is difficult for me to comment on such a beautiful model,
you have captured grace and elegance, or rather, I should say you've released it!
I always am inspired from your art
Gilberto!

Gilberto said...

Bill. As usual your comments exceed my expectations, but i have became so used to them that only for that mauves me to work against with renovated courage, you are a good thing to have close.
Quip as you are my friend.
