My newest piece was inspired by a prompt for a February art challenge. The prompt, “diamond,” took on a life of its own. I just had draw hundreds of diamonds. Needless to say, it took several days rather than one. It gave me the opportunity to try Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils for the first time. I was previously a Prismacolor woman. The polychromos are oil-based rather than wax-based. I noticed a difference in the strength of the pencils. And the color payoff is strong. (Review possibly coming later.) I tend to draw what a friend has deemed Kirsten’s Sad Girls. I haven’t done much in the way of classic pinup style. I liked the challenge, and took the opportunity to infuse my decadent aesthetics with a beauty with curves in all places, not just the right ones. (I enjoy representing body types similar to my own.)
So without further adieu….
