I love all the illustration of the period and am studing it myself. The strong, clean images appeal to me. And they knew how to paint a woman so beautifully. You have really captured that here, but in a looser more painterly style. Great work!

Hi Gordon, I am always digging around for more stuff to inspire my work and learn from. Recently, I stumbled upon some Francios Boucher conte' drawings; Wow! could that man draw; he had that "contour-line- minimalist approach", he could capture the entire portrait, including darks and lights, in just a few "very sure" beautiful lines. As always, thanks for your correspondence! JLC
