The elegant stance of this lady caught my attention so I made a quick sketch during work breaks.

This is pencil #2 on half a sheet of A4 plain paper. About 30 minutes here and there. Maybe I should make a proper painting later.:crossfingers:

Thanks Lin for hosting. I will definitely try out some more, time permitting.

This is really beautiful, I love how you have her head, hair, bun, neck contours so exquisitely formed. This is so strong on its own, but if you do decide to paint it, I want to see it !!

:thumbsup: :clap: Thank you all for the wonderful comments:wave:

I was idle this Sunday morning and for the first time in months, I brought out my acrylic tubes and some brushes to actually paint!

This took more than 2 hours. On a really small canvas board - myabe 5x7 inches.

I had to choose what I thought was a simple photo for my re-introduction to acrylics. It wasn't easy at all:lol: :lol:

The smaller/inner petals appear really white here. They have a bit of color too.
