Marie Prevost and I: the drawing challenge

Marie is standing and looking around. She is standing above and a side. Curious, she can see every detail. I love her posture. Leaning forward so tuned.

Front and back, black thread on paper.

This drawing challenge this week was hosted by Julia


  1. Dear Patrice…Thank you!!! off course I made it… and indeed the back side is great..:-)

    Dear Barbara…thank you!…

  2. On one side it looks like she is looking down on the city, from the back side it looks like she is tying her balerina laces… 🙂

  3. Ariane says

    wow, dear Hagar,
    its just fantastic. Great idea, great performance!

    One question: why Marie Prevost, The Good Bad Girl actress?

  5. Dear Tali…thank you…Its true, she looks more “ballerina like from the other side…:-)

    Dear Ariane….Thank you!!! Why did I choose her? Besides being interesting (better of worth) is about this specific photo that inspired me from the first moment.
