Black marker on Moleskine paper
8 1/4 x 11 3/4 inches
Barbara Muir © 2015I worked all day today with wonderful women.
I painted one of these friends recently, and
today had a try at drawing my friend
Courtney. She is helping me work on
web development, and while she questioned
me and worked I drew her.
Make that three tries. Her joyous expression,
huge, gorgeous eyes, intelligent kindness and
humour are hard to define with a pen and
paper. I came the closest by photographing
her and drawing the photo upside down.
Mike Dooley says to "expect miracles every
day." I think the companion to that idea
is noticing them. The two women who helped me
out today are miraculously fantastic.
Have a noticing-miracles day.
i love the energetic, expressive and sure way that you sketch with marker. This is a lovely sketch of your friend and even though I dont know her, I feel you must have captured her energy in it.
Love this work..
Thank you so much. I wish I could capture her energy, which seems to be boundless. She is a lovely, bright, funny woman -- wonderful -- like you.
Thank you so much. I'm delighted that you like it.
