In my drawing practice I got used to use only black, grey and white. But I always wanted to try colors. I don't know why, but I'm afraid of them. When I saw this reference, at once this idea came to my mind. I like the combination of color accents and black/white.
So this is also my first experience (did I say that I like to experiment?
) with using colors in drawing. This was really difficult, especially when I have to turn my attention from one color to another. I need more practice.
I'm really proud of this drawing, because I wonder how she was becoming alive step by step. These eyes are just looking through your soul. It makes me want to say: "Don't hide from the reality...".
