Ophelia's Flowers by CaroleHumphreys Ophelia's Flowers by CaroleHumphreys
'Ophelia's Flowers', pencil drawing sized A3 (42 x 29.7 cms).
I used Derwent pencils on Bristol Board. I estimate this took approximately 120 hours (completed in a month).

I'm greatly indebted to *endegor for allowing me to use his beautiful photo. Thank you so much Nikolai :hug:
He has produced some gorgeous photographs in his Ophelia series.
I haven't done a faithful copy and it's clear I haven't captured his model's beauty (it's a freehand drawing, totally!). I drew her hand originally and then felt the pointing finger made her look too alive in my drawing, so I decided not to include it.

That is so incredible! I adore the amount of time and dedication you put into this piece - I couldn't imagine investing 120h in one piece!! :wow: You've done such a lovely job. The shading is so delicate. :heart:
