DC: underwear



some tasks are so important that one flees into the woods
in what ever they have on
even in their underwear



the ink drawing 
before painting

 and 
below my woodland model

  1. On that sunny day, she can wear everything. It doesn't matter to her, she has more important things to do. Great picture. I like the way you start your drawing and the colours makes it a nice underwear picture. What do you think about Lotte's Art?

  7. I like how your drawings always have a story around them- this one feel lighthearted but I'm wondering about the grave stones in the back ground- perhaps
    it is telling me to stay in the moment no matter what :) spontaneity! lovely :)

    1. how fun to see how the gravestones have influenced you. I think staying in the moment is the most profound experience we can have. but there are no rules ;-)
      the gravestones came about because of Halloween, because i have never drawn any and in Honor of the weekend being: The Day of the Dead, a time to honor those who have passed before us.

  10. sweet painting. & I would her underwears are quite cute but I would have color in some bright color instead of black but the black works well in the environment, guess I'm just a bit color obsess

    have a great day.

    1. yes, bright color would be nice
      and also make her stand out more
      not sure why i chose black, maybe to make it look more like underwear for the theme
      i would have never dressed her like this without the theme
      but then again, maybe this piece would not exist.... if not for the theme
      themes are a bit like deadlines and can inspire completion
      i love completing pieces

      sweet new week to you

  11. that model of yours shows its ribcage, could do with some under- and above wear... ;)))
    i like the tombstones too, the inscriptions, a hint of humour, and realism.

  16. This is so touching - of course returning the little owl to its nest would be of maximum importance.
    What a wonderful story to draw and then paint, and even more wonderful to paint it in such a beautiful and sensitive way.
    The colours you have chosen reflect the seriousness of the mission and the environment with the gravestones.
    Yes, I like this very much, you might have guessed!

  19. Adorable! And I like her underwear too. Thank goodness I rarely encounter such important tasks. No one wants to see my granny panties. I love your brushstrokes. :)
