Tim Walker’s photo of Thomasin McKenzie gave birth to this design! [Which I depicted within a prior post here…] So rather than an egg, my sprite dashes with a snow globe behind her. At first I didn’t know how I wanted to go about adding “snow” inside the globe – that is, until I recalled my little squirt bottles of “liquid pearls” [via Tim Holtz collection which can be found here: https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/%5D
Yes, friends: Take heart! I had wanted to post this image in time so that it would be visible on or before Christmas Day… However, due to holiday chaos and intergalatic tomfoolery – as well as other hits which I’d just as soon not mention – I didn’t meet that mark. And being late for anything is not something that I am generally known as being.
Voila! With wishes to you all of peace, wellness, & merriment, Jeni Moore
No one will identify über-model Karlie Kloss in this color pencil sketch – but then the same could be said in Tim Walker’s photograph of her, taken for a British Vogue fashion editorial back in 2010. That’s alright, as that wasn’t my aim.
And when I returned to using my own hand in my art, I hadn’t intended to focus a whole lot on mastering figure drawing. [Nor did I intend to use color pencils all that much!] Yet between this extraordinary pose and vibrant greens, I just couldn’t resist the challenge.
