Fantasy from the underlayer-Drawing the unknown…

Fantasy  ©copyright2013owpp


Here, I let my hand wander through the times my
Would run wild, where my crayons would lead the way to
Never planned, take control of colors… the vanguard
Of an army
Of ideas lying in the underlayer, waiting to spring out
Uninhibited, uninhabited by minds already born…

As a much younger person I used to let my hand roam freely on the page creating beautiful shapes which with time got lost… Here I tried to recapture that talent but it will need some practice.
The good part is that my oil pastel experience is getting on 🙂

The girl with the pearl 2007

This Pastel crayons drawing was inspired by the film I had seen ” Girl with a pearl earring ” with scarlett Johansson as the main character.
I’ll put in the information about this film in case you are interested in watching it, it infuses you in the world of art and if you are not too sure about your future as an artist, it stimulates and encourages you in that direction. I’ll see if I have the possibility to find it on you tube and post it to you.
Let me know what you think about this drawing!
