My Studio

Afternoon Artist

I’ve chosen the kitchen as my studio because lots of fabulous food is generated (and eaten) here, it’s sunny and warm, it has a great view of my garden (more on that in my next post), it has great lighting, and its open layout allows me to chat with my daughter and mother while I work.

Yes, it is… Christmas Day!)

I am not completely…

So we decided to make some kind of assocation with what we both do best : She dresses and I draw. At first we intended to make several drawings but as I set her and my dear sister in a very complicated position, and Malina had taken a dress with patterns on it (I mean, seriously. Why so complicated?!) we just did just one. But I’m quite happy with it… And with the whole afternoon actually.
Thanks to Malina and Alice for their incredible patience (I forgive you for the tons of complains and how you kept moving the exact part of the body I told you to…
