  1. Terrific portraits Isabel. The expressions and poses tell a real story into the lives of the sitters. I particularly like the one of the young boy.

  2. Wow! You've been very busy...but for a true artist such as yourself, it probably just flew by in time.

  7. I just found your blog, via Urban Sketchers. I lived in Nouakchott for 3 years, and your pictures bring back so many memories, and even brought me to tears. Thank you so much for sharing them.. . the portraits, the tea-making, the landscapes. . . so many memories! You capture the essence of Mauritania beautifully.

  9. Que sorte ter a oportunidade de desenhar na Mauritânia, é certamente mais interessante desenhar pessoas numa cultura diferente da nossa e que ainda está tão ligada à terra e às tradições.
    Bons desenhos!

  12. I seem to have missed quite a few of your posts lately - wow, Isabel, just wonderful sketches that I've so enjoyed seeing - and the portrait in the last post is outstanding, though I agree I generally prefer a less finished look
