Really great sketch, do you work this up into a finished painting?
and as for the video, color me impressed where do u find these things

Celeste Bergin said...

Dave, this painting is a draft, I might do another and I might not...I never know. Thanks for the comment! Looking forward to seeing YOUR new work. :)

He's not the complete dude unless he buys her this painting, too. It is finished, IMHO.

That young man thought about love for a LONG time before she said, "Yes!" What a great story she/they will have to tell their children, grandchildren, and anyone else who will sit still to hear about this marriage proposal!

As usual, your sketch is confident and says just enough to get the lightness of the flowers and solids of the vase.

This one is spring, it's optomistic delicacy.
