Street scene and portraits

So this is the street concert in Collobrières, in color this time! And the reference photo below.

 

 
 Collobrières is a small and lovely village, very isolated, and well known for its production of chestnuts (and chestnut cream, icecream and so on). This was during the chestnut festival in october 2008.

 
This is my dad. I took an old photo and tried to make him look older to match better with him now. The hair is not right  but the rest is him, I think. I offered it to his wife for Mother's day (because she's important to me too) and she loved it.



Those little ones are Maxime and Pauline, my friend's children. This was for her birthday.
 I loved drawing them, I felt the cuteness, it was like being with them. They're all far away and I miss them.


 

And my last series of portraits found on the net!
Man and woman from Milano, seen on The Sartorialist's blog (I think they look like brother and sister), Nat King Cole, and a Japanese young woman with red hair seen also on the Sartorialist's blog (she's my personal favorite!).

I'm off to draw the last book I read!

All so good! My favorite is of the children, and especially the youngest child.

Que du bonheur ! Superbe collection, avec, comme Dan, un coin de coeur pour les enfants: un dessin plein de tendresse et de bien jolies couleurs pour l'ensemble ! Bravo !

Awesome! The street performance drawing turned out really good =) The portrait of your dad and the drawing of those kids are amazing =) I think you've achieved a breakthrough in terms of infusing expressions and emotions into your art. I mean... look at those portraits!!! ^^

I knew it would look great with color; I wasn't wrong!! And I really like all of the portraits here. Your dad and the children, wow!

These are all marvelous. The street scene is so colorful, and you've captured the feeling of it perfectly. Your dad is quite handsome, and the children are just as sweet as can be. I love your use of color in all of them. The 4 portraits are really something - so much expression! nancy

Wow!Belle série.
Tu dois bien avoir pas loin d'une centaine de portraits et aussi couverture de livres.
Bravo, les portraits sont trés bons. J'aime beaucoup quand tu utilises des couleurs inhabituelles. Ton père est super.
