Presenting: The first piece of art for my “Around the World in 365 Days Challenge”!
Since itsy bitsy details are always great fun...both “Ellen's” here are based on a picture of Fiona in a scene in “Brigadoon”. The garland upon her head is made of harebells. The pattern of her shawl or screen (call it what you will) is based off the pattern of an actual tartan of the Douglas clan.
These are the first drawings I have done with colored pencils since the days when my artwork mainly consisted of coloring pictures. One of my visions with this personal challenge is to use it as a plan to advance my drawing skills and hence, though I see much in the pictures that might be improved, I am altogether quite pleased with them!
Which is your favorite rendition?Have you ever read “The Lady and the Lake” or watched “Brigadoon”?
