'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
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.
