Thank you so much Smile
Main reason I added insects was, that Pierre (my model) likes them most...

Hi, Rita! I really like your work, and particularly this one - for many reasons - the quality of the rendering, of the composition and especially the fact that you added insects (something, sadly, most artists often don't dare doing whilst they are so wonderful in shapes and colours) - Good work, girl ! Wink

Such a wonderful piece! And I love the title. That's a particularly magnificent individual clinging head down to the staff... what feelers!

You did a great job on this, Rita. I don't have the patience for pastels. My hat's off to you.

Ha ha ha - thank you, Uwe. Problem was not Pierre to stand still - but the insects not to move Smile

Hi Rita,

This is really good, one of your best I think. The cloth on his shirt is very convincing. I also really like the eyes, really piercing and quite striking against the colour of his skin. Fantastic!

It is sooo cool to see work up here where i already saw the original Smile - Great, great piece Rita, this one is really fabulous with all the details.

Oh and Pierre you are a wonderful model, i just wonder how you could stand so still with all those little critters around you - hehe ---

Very nice work, Rita. You seem to be building up a gallery of Epilogue artists in various guises.

Art at its best.
