: I had my drawing back and had to take a new picture because of a twist in the natural light orientation.
This version conforms to the original enlightment. Sorry for 2 steps upload, hope you will still like it (her)
Thank you for you great feedback despite this twist
I was challenged to draw a large scale for a 3 weeks exhibition ... There it is, finished and hung in a chapel, sharing space with others of my drawings and 12 other artists for 3 weeks
The reference is a photo of Leona Lewis www.pulsarwallpapers.com/data/…
.I loved the sun light in her hair, the movement and transparency of her dress, and thought it could fit a large scale. Many details are lost on digitalized version.
I hope you like it (Just for fun can you see the stylized bird hidden in the shades of her dress?)
