Dawns March Challenge.


A super sketch Linda - off the top of my head...Miss Haversham from David Copperfield? Now I'm unsure if that was the Dickens novel she was in!

That should be Great Expectations and Miss Havisham! Shown myself up again!

A cracking drawing, Linda. Yes, my first thought was Great Expectations.

Oh yes … and a great drawing too.

I'll go along with everybody else. A great, atmospheric drawing.

Very dramatic Linda.

Excellent sketch, done beautifully Linda.

Thanks everyone, I really enjoyed doing this drawing, I would like to say I had done it from my imagination but I'm not that clever, I used an internet free image from the film, the actress was Martisha Hunt for those of us old enough to remember.😀😁

Sorry that should be Martita Hunt 😏

Fabulous work Linda, and a topic close to my heart, favourite novels. Stand by...(-:

Wonderful study, Linda, very well observed and drawn.

Amazing sketch Linda

Superb Linda.....it’s the wild look that gives her away, especially her hair. Excellent!

Many thanks Maureen, Jim (I suspect many more of Dickens novels will emerge for this challenge) Russell, Willie, Anjana and Fiona ( the hair was achieved with a blending stump) for such kind comments.

That is terrific Linda.

Wow Linda, this is superb, especially those hands and the way you have drawn the fabrics.

I take it that the March Forum Challenge is to illustrate a book cover and hazard a guess at the book title. How do I find out about the forum challenge? Couldn’t find anything in the menu.

Excellent Drawing Linda

Thank you for your comments Richard ,Carole and David, Carole if you go into your menu bar at bottom of page its there under forum, second down from gallery.

Just want to say thank you Linda for opening my eyes to the forum. Not so good with technology as I’m rather old and decrepit but have discovered that I can obtain all sorts of info’ by just clicking on a name. It’s wonderful. I may even try to participate when I’m back in the UK. Don’t have much time at the moment to paint as I’m wintering in Spain but will e home next week. Let the fun begin. Thanks again Linda😊😊😊

Carole join the club, i'm old and decrepit as well, lol. Enjoy the warm weather in Spain, hope to see you soon on the forum,Linda

Many thanks Linda.

Hang on Studio Wall
