Absolutely fantastic art! I would love to know about your training to do art like this.  Is this possible?  Thank you so much! dontate1@gmail.com or my FB  page Don Tate (calligrapher and glass engraver) located in Utah, USA

I think your choice of persons/people to draw is quite unusual.  I particularly like the way you have them apparently looking at something most interesting to both of them.  I think your skills are amazing, but the most difficult thing in art (my opinion) is to choose a subject that allows the observer to join in the picture and feel an emotion because of what has been illustrated.  You are most successful at this in all that you do and you are to be highly commended.  What training do you have (schooling or experience) to develop this highly trained sense of art?  Thank you so much!  Keep up the great work!

Several things: First, this is exceptionally good. Any drawing that could be readily mistaken for a photograph has virtues I could never hope to match. The details in her classes are staggering.
Secondly, I have no idea why, but she looks familiar to me.
Third: she is very pretty, and the baby is cute.  (Strangely, it's the baby's ear that most looks like part of a drawing.)
My congratulations on the whole work.

I was on a singing tour back in 1983 based in Antwerp, so I did get into the Netherlands briefly (by Kapellan), and bought a beer there, but I've never had an extended visit. I'd like to.

I'm very impressed by the quality of the details, congrats !
I'm wondering how do you do to draw these really tinny white hairs ?

Thank you very much. Do you know 'negative drawing' and indentation? A couple of techniques very useful for frawing hair :D

A lovely result.  I like that their interest is on something lower rather than looking toward the viewer. :)

The children's attention is on a public water tap. The picture was taken on a playground in The Netherlands.

Excellent! I love all the child's blonde wispys - I have the hardest time rendering those. Oddly, I really love the reflection in her sunglasses as well. Amazing work!

Many thanks for appreciating my drawing. I'm glad you like it! :D White hair and pale grey is not an easy task, I agree.

I'm very glad if you think the result is sufficient. :D
