Learning to Swim by Snow-Owl
Learning to Swim
I can taste salt water
And if I blink again
You'll be sinking in
So we'll learn to swim in the oceans you made

Ed Sheeran ~ Shirtsleeves

So happy to share my new drawing with you! I've wanted to draw the Ophelia-type-of-portrait for quite a long time, but needed an idea of how to make it a little different. As you can see, my latest obsession - the golden flakes - turned out to be the solution, which I truly hope that you will enjoy.

The concept is quite ambiguous - it's either about giving in or 'learning to swim'. Obviously from the title, I prefer the latter version. :aww:

Funny that I first turned on the song above just to pass the time while scanning this drawing. I thought it should fit nicely.

*Graphite lead pencil: HB, 2B and 6B;
*Coloured pencils: white, golden;
*White pastel;
*Coloured paper, Canson (29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches);
*Kneadable and simple soft erasers;
*Cotton wool and cotton buds for some blending;
*"Deco gold flakes" - gilding foil;
*.. and almost a century of time... ;)

You're very welcome on my :facebook: page, as well!…

I took up drawing with graphite more seriously than before at the age of fifteen. And several years later digital art became another interest of mine. After these eight years I still enjoy every single minute of self-teaching in art: practising, finding out new techniques and always looking for inspiration.

Current Residence: Lithuania, Vilnius
Favourite style of art: Magical Realism
