"Red!"
This latest drawing by our long-time French member Aurelia Chaintreuil, who is equally adept at coloured and graphite pencil portraiture, just had to be promoted to the Starving Artists Hall of Fame.

This dynamic image gabbed me the first moment I saw it. The composition itself possesses a wonderful balance, as does the use of vivid colours coupled with subtle textures. There is so much that could cause discord yet no one element fights for dominance.

The vibrant red of the dress, echoed in the colour of her lips; the wonderful three-dimensional, glossy hair; and the soft skin texture - all live in perfect harmony. Add Aurelia's skilful execution and you have a drawing more than worthy of being my Editor's Choice.

Visit Aurlelia's gallery to see more of her superb drawings. The original of "Red!" is for sale and open edition prints are available.
