Metroheads - Reading Women

Women reading - One reads a book, the other one does a crossword, or is it a Soduko, er... Sudoka? Sadoku, Sukoda? Whatever, they are all packed into warm clothes, scarfs, gloves, berets, balaclavas, hats and boots. Boots are very fashionable right now. Turtleneck sweaters keep the necks warm. Mine too! - It's very cold in Paris.

Is this mother and daughter??? It sure looks like it -- not only in physical aspects, but demeanor!
Turtlenecks - a life saver! We're supposed to get more snow Tuesday - oh I hope so. Do you get ANY at all???
Enjoy the day Andrea. Don't work too hard.

I thought the same: that there is a distinct family resemblance. Sensitively rendered. Well done.

You are so talented with these.

I recall a time when I road the bus into the city for work. The people watching was good but at that time I wasn't aware that I could draw....never entered my mind. Funny how life changes.

Clear, sunny, windy and COLD here in New Mexico. I'm ready for Spring.

More interesting and fun metro heads. I like turtle neck sweaters too. I hate my neck being cold. Yes how do you draw when it is cold out. Or is the metro heated?

aimee said...

i love your metro sketches!

Andrea, these are so wonderful. You have painted them in such a peaceful way. I love the colors you have chosen for this painting as it shows not only calmness, but also warmth.

I am afraid I am not a turtleneck wearer...I do not like the feeling of the fabric touching the front of my neck. Do you think I was choked in some other life? :)

Truly lovely work. I am thinking of an idea ...remind me to speak of it to you.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

they certainly don't look happy, it's probably the chilly weather. the siberian winds are hitting london this weekend, probably paris too. keep warm and cosy.

You capture moods Andrea...I feel their feelings...
Stay bundled up then, keep warm.
Me I am walking outside in a light cotton sweater! Go figure!

Soft wonderful colors, splashed with that bright gold scarf!
I love the look of turtlenecks,,,on other people. I would love the warmth of them on my neck,,,but they make me feel strangled; restricted. Not only that, but I have a very long neck, and feel that turtlenecks make me look quite giraffe like!
:-D
