Jane,

Your "sketch" is a work of art!!
a very elegant way of getting to the Heart of the subject and you have enough information to get the subject matter across and capture something that over rendering can destroy.

NICE.

I love the atmosphere you have created in this sketch, Jane. Love the foreground with the row of clothes hanging and fading away.

Bravo! Vous savez capter l'essentiel, montrer ce qui vous a plu, et vous savez le retranscrire en laissant, malgré tout, une grande place au rêve. Continuez!
