Oranjevrouw - from the Dutch woman's soccer team

This member of the Dutch 'Orange' women's soccer team I drew as a reply to Jimmy Connors in Berlin, who has sent me several collages and recently wrote very kind words about our 'Orange' teams.

I guess the player won't recognize herself in my drawing (she's a very good, excellent player!), but at least I had a try. That's what counts, doesn't it?!

3 opmerkingen:

  1. I found it strange that you draw a football player. Then I realised she is a woman.

    1. It is my inability to draw correct portraits.
      When I was in my teens and twenties, all people I drew, either man or woman, looked more male than female. A friend of mine had the opposite problem: each face she drew, looked more female than male, either woman or man.
      Some years later I lend a book from the library about portrait drawing. And by drawing all examples from that book, I learned to draw more correctly. But so to see I still am learning!..

    2. But not... It is just because I hadn't read the name. Your drawing is wonderful. I bet she would recognize herself and would be proud of this postcard!
