- Winter Beauty -

In February I started this drawing, after viewing this beautiful photo of Jessica: >link<.
I worked a lot on the skin tone, in real life is looks almost creamy. I wanted to create a soft winter mood, in a sort of dreamy way. I was debating with myself whether or not I should have added a dark background but my idea was to have it very bright and light. It might have brought the girl out more if I had done it. I am not sure.
We haven't had much of winter here. I wish we had just a week or so with snow, as I was planning to do some winter photos this year but I guess mother nature didn't want it this way.
I am just happy spring is on the way as I usually really don't like winter, too dark for my liking.
I am not sure if I'm a 100% happy with it. I think it lost something during the scanning, which I can't quite put my finger on.

Anyway, here she is, winter beauty.
