(I joked that this one of her looking over the bridge should be called "Koi-centration"...another friend suggested "Pond-erology"...let's just say the search for a title continues :)
And I started this beautiful drawing, also from a photo taken that day in the garden. Our fabulous model noticed a bright beam of light hitting a large rock, and perched herself up there, catching not only the beautiful natural light, but a wonderful glow from the drapery beneath her.
This large mixed media drawing is 24" x 36", on watercolor paper that is mounted to foam core. It's going in a beautiful bathroom with some white marble, so I am building up layers of charcoal, paint, and glaze to mimic the layers you find in that natural stone. It's beautiful in person! Lot's of texture and interest, but also light and feminine. It's almost done!
