And here's one more.....

This is an interesting one. I drew her once before...not sure if I put her here on Dancing Daisies or not but originally I drew her and simply added paint in two places. I did her all in pencil but gave her blue eyes and a scarlet tatoo on her arm. That one was done for a mixed media scavenger hunt on Freeing Your Wings but when I added the blue eyes I smudged the paint onto her neck. It really upset me as I was so pleased with my drawing up to that point. Well it has always bugged me so I drew her again, intending for her to be just the same although this time I left out the blue eyes and the tatoo. Funny thing though isn't it? Again the drawing herself took on the expression she wanted to have. To me she looks just slightly nervous whereas her pre-decessor looked more confident...or maybe that bit more determined...whereas this young lady looks more unsure of herself. That how it seems to me anyway. When I think about it, I would have been feeling anxious when I drew this one above as I was still feeling upset that I had messed up the first one. Well....maybe I have too vivid an imagination....but here is the original....what do you think?


  1. Dear Lynda, I'm so jealous that you have developed the ability to bring out the wonderful beings that are hiding out in your spirit I guess you might say? The faces are amazing. I think the first one also seems more confident,maybe a little cheeky like she knows what is going on, and the second one quietly serene, her face is so much softer just by the change of the jawline. You are becoming quite the artist and although I'm so jealous (smiles) I'm so happy for you, it give me hope..hugs Susie

  2. Wow, this is beautiful. You're an incredible artist.

    Have a great day!
