Daniella, your sketch is so beautiful.
Have you been to art school ?
You are very talented. It's perfect, I have seen one of heads of the daughters of Akhenaten at the museum in Bonn and the resemblance is startling.

Thanks Rozette, you're very kind. Very Happy
No, I haven't been to art school, but I would love to go.
I do sketches of peoples' pets for money sometimes. I don't make much from it, but it's fun.

Daniella,
If you would love to go to art school than you must do that.
Here in Belgium you can take evening school to study art.
I have respect for people who are so talended like you are.

Absolutely lovely, Daniella - your handling of the medium is very strong and confident, but at the same time beautifully sensitive. I'd love to see more of your work.

Thank you all for the compliments! It makes it better that you guys have actually seen these type of sculptures from pictures and some of you have seen them in museums.

The people I live with and my family just didn't have the same appriciation for it, and I quote "It's ugly" and "Why is the head so big?". Laughing Honestly, I didn't get one possitive remark.

That is a really excellent picture. I wish I could draw. I managed to get the brilliant result of Ungraded in my art exam at school. Crying or Very sad

Daniella, I told you not to post the pictures you drew of me! Mad

Just kidding. Those are terrific drawings, girl. You're very gifted, especially considering you've had no formal training. I have, and I couldn't draw half as well as you. Wink

Maybe Daniella could draw them and you could paint them. Very Happy

I have been thinking about doing a painting for you Kevin Very Happy
But I didn't know what you would like. And then there's the access you may have to paintings anyway?
