I have some old photographs of a dear old friend no longer with me. There will never be any other photos and some of the ones I have are pretty sad quality.

Lee is a great teacher and artist. I always enjoy and learn from her books that I have read. She rocks.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and I humbly submit mine-- these drawings are not realistic. There's a lot of smudging and detail work but not a lot of consideration to the overall forms of the subjects. As a result the drawings look waxy and disjointed. I think they also suffer from the artist's commitment to the original photographs of the subjects, which makes the drawings appear lifeless.
