Ms. Martha

This is the work I started in class in November and finally finished! I don’t know the lady we were trying to learn how to do eye glasses and gray hair so I am proud of the finished drawing. As I said I do not know the model although she speaks volumes to me with her eyes and attitude that are very visible.

We have all known someone at some time or other that told you who they were without saying a word. To me when I look at Ms. Martha I see a very strong yet venerable lady.  I also see someone I know all too well. The tilt of her head, the way she holds her tells me she is sure and confident with whom she is.
It took me a little longer to finish Ms. Martha because once I got to the eyeglasses my Essential Tremor raised its ugly head.  When this happened I had to start making one short mark at a time until I could get them the way they were supposed to be but then came the task of making the glare marks, this we did not have time to cover in class. Our teacher was kind enough to email everyone suggestions on the procedure on how to accomplish this, with the caution to try it out on scrap paper before actually doing it on our “masterpieces”. Good advice, Maureen!
