Reflected layered and finished, my new figurative drawing


Here is Reflected..a little stepping stone in my figurative art.
A drawing studying a childhood fascination with reflections, reflections of all kind.
I tried to bring emphasis to the reflected image as opposed to only the little girls curly locks. Framing it with lines and using subtle contrast, the viewer is drawn to trying to imagine the little girls expression, the look in her eyes.
I used the really smooth Mellotex paper and spent a long time rendering the darks. The smoothness of the paper really gave a nice texture to the window pane.
Lessons in patience and technique have been learned and my fingers are itching to get back up to the drawing board.
Back soon but in the mean time all the best
