Another Lonely Mourning by cheetahspirit Another Lonely Mourning by cheetahspirit
Around the time I asked Bree to pose for this portrait, I had wanted to create something in the style of Victoria Frances, whose art is all over my brother's walls in his game room. Also of inspiration was *Anna-Marine and *Zindy
I made a point, however, of not searching out their art while in the process of creating this, so as not to overtly "copy" any of their work. So this is an homage to those artists. My model liked the gothic theme, and so this piece was born!

Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore 400 vellum 4 ply (front side of the paper). 19"w x 26"h. Photo by Eric Law.

This piece has won:
1st Place - Michigan Colored Pencil 2013 - Dearborn, MI
The Views and Visions Award (Best of Show) - Views and Visions 2012 - Huron Valley Council for the Arts - Highland, MI

All of my artwork is copyrighted. This means that ONLY I have the right to copy my artwork. If you would like to purchase a print from me, please visit my Etsy shop. Thanks!

This is beautiful work. It has a touch of darkness but still looks very dreamy to me; perfect combination.
Looks so smooth, like pastel. Great work and thanks for the mentioning.
