Christy Calling My Name




















I saw a picture of a beautiful girl today and had to draw her. Sometimes something catches my attention, in an artistic way, and it's just as if someone told me I won something wonderful, it's the same feeling. When I saw this girl, Christy is her name, I thought that a fantastic way to draw her would be really, really up close with LOTS and lots of white. Painted, messy lines and very sparse color. Something like Nagel but messier, and again, with lots less color. I really like the final product. I love the splatters by her shoulder and eye, I love the paint smears and the restful spaces of no color at all.

Thanks Noelle!

You know, I like her eyes a lot too. It's honestly one of those magical things about drawing -- I looked back at the finished drawing and thought, now, HOW did I get the eyes to look like THAT?!?!? :) You just never know how some things end up like they do.

I'm so happy that you like your portrait. That makes me mucho pleased. It's easy to come up with a beautiful drawing when the subject is beautiful. :)
