Big Eyed Gal for Sunday Sketches



her eyes beckoned
I leaned in to understand the feeling that permeated
and flowed from those eyes
a feeling so large
that I might succumb 
and be lost eternally to the depths of her view
her essence
my only choice was to step close
as though sliding into a warm pool of aqua water
immersing my soul in her fluid spirit
~



This is my first big eyed girl, 
I was concerned that I would ruin all the pencil work I had done by adding the eye lashes,
I was so happy that they turned out just fine!
I suppose practice will help me to feel more confident.


I forgot to take a photo while the above art was still a sketch
but
so that you get an idea
here is another big eyed girl sketch, this is how she began:

  21. a pool of aqua water - yes, very well described. though I would say cool water instead of warm. the blue makes me think of something cool. like cool blue skies.

    have a lovely day.
