I was inspired by a photograph that I will link to as soon as I find it. I was originally interested in the pose of the model then I was in the garment, but once I got started I challenged myself with doing more texture. It did take a long time but I was pleased when it was finished. Though this piece is hand drawn, I try to get the color of the image enhanced digitally to exhibit the best product for reproduction.
This was drawn on 11×14 white drawing paper. The medium used was fine tipped black and and a red gel pen. Featured In: Hat Heads Group 11/7/2011 Lips Group 11/19/2011 Decorative and Traditional Art Group 11/29/2011 Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement Group 12/2/2011
