- Autumn Princess -
I wanted to create something with the earth colours, I very much enjoyed working in these colours last year and I think I will be doing it more this year.
I actually tried to mix as many different brownish tones for the trees and the middle part of her dress. This year I want to focus more on background. My current focus is trees, meaning you'll be seeing lots of these in the upcoming drawings.
I wished for the girl to be a bit thoughtful in her expression. Not exactly sadness but the feeling of summer fading. The feeling of the last colourful leaves falling, before the long winter comes. We currently have winter here and it's been snowing for the past days.
Made with Caran D'Ache colour pencils and Faber Castell colour pencils.
I used the lovely Jessica as model for my girl, mainly for the pose this time, though I changed her arms position.
