Leafy Loveliness

Hello everyone,

I have a drawing for you today with a leafy, Autumnal feel to it. To be fair, here down in the south of the UK the weather is lovely, really sunny which is highly surprising!!

I'm trying to draw my faces in a variety of styles but all of you out there who draw, you know what a struggle it can be to deviate from your 'style'. Many a time I think I've done something different then a nagging thought persists that it looks familiar and yes there's one just like it done months ago....very annoying!

Close up of Decoart Liquid Glass on the leaves.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

That Craft Place, Mixed Media Anything Goes

Inspirational, Picture Inspiration ( I've used the colours and leaves)

Daler Rowney Media Paper, FC Polychromos pencils, Distress Inks for the background effect, the leaves are an Inkadinkadoo stamp stamped on a Gelli print using Decoart paints, Decoart Liquid Glass for the beads on the leaves, Tim Holtz sentiment.

Hope you like it

  4. I am impressed by your drawing skills and there is nothing wrong with working in your comfort zone. In my opinion comfort zone means a style that suits you best. And this looks great And i am fan; I can't even draw a decent table myself :)

  5. Oh my those eyes are stunning and that is the biggest battle with faces, or at least I find. This is a beautiful picture, can't wait to see more of your drawings xx

  6. She is gorgeous Donna...Oooh such talent.xxx

  7. Sometimes we ware a bit critical about our own work. I think you did great, and are getting better and better on drawing faces. The hair is bautiful too, it's seems to shine!

  8. What a beautiful face. I don't know what your normal style is but she is stunning. Love the autumn flowers too.

  9. Such a beautiful drawing, love the serene look on her face and if that's your style - don't change. Love the effect you've achieved on the leaves.
