Ok… that’s that one done

David's pages in Loraine's Moley

It took me a time to get round to pick this one up. But now it’s here. Ok… closeness in the undergrowth. Suppose that needed to go in here.

I think I’ll stick with my elective urban belongings, think of Joan Eardley and some other literal interpretations of close, THE close, the TENEMENT close.

But it looks as if I’ve quickly moved to being the slow one: too much work elsewhere at the moment. Now that I’ve managed to post the Dance moley off to Vivien, I will see to this one.

Where’s the newspaper, the pair of scissors, the oil pastels….?

Lorraine's coloured drawing was so exquisite I was in real trouble following it! What I tried to do here was to carry on the garden theme but introduce figures, not dancing per se, but embracing in intimite closeness. The garden elements are based on my own garden, and the figures are based on my own experience!

I like the continuity you've kept there. The golden figures contrast nicely aginst the green. I have no idea what I'll be doing when this one reaches me.

Is this suitable for the sketch book of a single lady of a certain age?
Only joking, it looks great.;)

Thanks Yellow, I'm sure you will think of something - perhaps a demure self portrait?

Now I'm blushing Lorraine - I never gave it a second thought, just acting naturally. Hope you have gotten over the shock!

And thanks too to Vivien for your appreciation.

Looks great, David, I like it very much - a little sauciness adds some nice spice to the mix in these books.

Thanks to you too, Brian.
I was simply trying to express a close, loving, relationship in a garden setting, something that comes naturally to me.
