Thanks everyone, your comments are a lovely morale boost - I have just hung 20 pieces for an exhibition opening today. This is one of them. The theme of the exhibition is words ending with "ity" hence Deity, that led on to wanting to portray Mother Nature - as a younger lady not the older lady I usually picture when I think "Mother Nature".
Timo - you know I can't get away from portraying the pretty ladies! I think I need to find a new subject matter LOL!
Lexycat - funny when I did my artist statement for the promotional stuff I mentioned "juicy" colours LOL! Yes, this drawing is all dry pencils.
pencilnbrush - I think the polychromos and stabilo pencils help to create that dense saturated colour.
Candle - I am new to doing clothing and fabrics, so pretty pleased with this one. By the way, just come home from a trip to Colorado and I fell in love with the place.........
