Sketchbook: Girl with Flowers in Her Hair


I drew this a few days ago while waiting for my kids to get out of school. The night before I drew this, I was reading up on Jeanne Hébuterne and a picture of her got stuck in my head. This isn't exact - in fact it doesn't have much to do with the inspiration at all. With the original, I really liked the part in her hair, her intense gaze and that half smile on her lips.

Wow...it's been so long since I've been able to really have a good browse at all of my old blog friend's art work. You have some fabulous work in your Etsy shop.
