Photo Challenge #232

This week’s image is from Natalie Ruka.

Her studio had no mirror just a working area where she sat and brought her images to life.
Her art was unique, portraits her specialty.
Her technique was touch. She would close her eyes and feel the model’s face, committing it to memory before transferring it to her canvas.
Pen and pencil outlines adorned her walls. Few were in colour now and those that were had subtle tones and shades rather than vibrant hues.
No-one had guessed she was going blind when she started, so when the darkness permanently fell, she was well equipped, and established, to deal with it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
