The Year of the Fairy Tale has been on “vacation” for a couple of months now. It is hard for me to keep creating without an outside “container” or “reason”. The other day I decided to break that pattern and just DO IT on my own. (knowing that The Year of the Fairy Tale was about to start again!)
I have always been fascinated by figure drawing, probably because I’m fascinated by people. This pencil sketch was done fairly quickly as I was trying to capture the essence of the figure – rather than realism. (Also, it’s easier to sketch essence!) Here’s what evolved from my DO IT.
Inspired by The Seven Valleys – a mystical book written by Baha’u’llah. This Baha’i book doesn’t specifically focus on longing, pain or remorse – it’s just what evolved in my psyche.
