Dancing with the Moon

original pencil drawing

in keeping with my New Year’s resolution here’s the first upload on a Wednesday evening!! I managed to only colour one this week, and it feels great… i spent more time on it, and enjoyed other activities, such as drawing and time spent with family … i am really happy with how this worked out

she’s ‘dancing with the moon’ – i used mechanical pencils on A2 or A3 paper, inspired by an image i saw in a magazine of a geisha from the hind view…. and my woollen plait i use for reference all the time (i made this plait from a ball of wool…as i always have trouble drawing plaits) and i think it’s inspired by the vintage look…I just love adornments and romanticism..and i think it’s such a lovely thought to be lost in a dream and dancing with the moon like this, on a beautiful night….. we had a beautiful full moon the night after i completed this, and it felt like i was in synch with the moon
