"The Quilter" Finished

Postby yoli » Thu Mar 26, 2015 12:49 pm

This is "The Quilter" it is finished. I made some changes, I really had
a challenge with the face and skin tone. But I am happy with the end results
I admire Grandma Moses work and I notice her faces in her painting are very basic
and yet I love her work. I hope you enjoy.

Yoli, I see a vast improvement with her face - everything nicely toned down but I still have to be able to see where her nose ends - could it be the photo?
I LOVE the precision of the quilt patterns, colors nice and clear. I would like to see her right hand made slightly larger below the fingers, I think. I know you're trying
to foreshorten that hand...still Very Nice. Thank You, E

Thank you E. ! It is the photo. Every time I tried to work on the nose... I could just scream!!! I will try just shading the end of the nose and see what happens.
I am very happy with the quilt considering it was all done free hand it did come out pretty precise. I was trying to foreshorten that hand.

Thank you
Yolanda
