It's just Ink and a little watercolor

A little Sunflower

At first my consolation for the Tahitian. It is so far away from here, but I imagine it is horrible for the people staying there.
Hope they will get help soon.
This little Sunflower I painted yesterday. The kind answer of my request for permission came promptly. The copyright for the botanical picture is expired.

Umbrella and poppies

My drawing studies are going on and I can see some progress.

Before I painted the umbrella I've drawn it 5! times with pencil on drawing paper. I think I will dream of it tonight :)).

The poppies I painted without any drawing, just paint on the paper and both at the same time. During one was drying, I painted on the other. It tooks me less than a half hour for both.  That was a great experience for me because I never thought I can do that!

Let me know your opinion, am I a star or not? :)))

Thank's for stopping by.

Murateri updated

Following Sladdi's comment concerning too much lightness of the hair, I darkened some shadows of the drawing. Hope it will work better now.

This year starts with a drawing

Hi all!

First work in 2010 is a pencil and charcoal drawing of a nice japanese girl called murataeri. The photo was given under creative commons license from flickr member idua_japan. Thanks to him for the wonderful picture.

I selected this for a drawing because I love the glamourous but innocent look of that girl.

Klick here for the photograph

Hope you like it and also  my drawing. Enjoy!
