Worked really well Linda.

This is really nice work, Linda.

Beautifully drawn

It takes me 20 mins to sit comfortably on a chair Linda. I would say this session was very successful.

This really is great, Linda. Beautiful position and perfectly executed.

Many thanks Jennifer, Sylvia, Glenda, Gudrun, Carole, Adele and Mia for your very kind comments. It was quite a relief to do this sitting down after the previous hour and a quarter standing up at the easel, whilst she was prancing about (see the forum for these under Spanish Dancers).

God work, Linda.

Nicely caught Linda.

Beautifully executed Linda, I think you have done a really good job with this exercise, well done.

Many thanks Margaret for your kind comment. Greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ruth.
