This week I found the theme a bit of a challenge. It's a great word but I had too many ideas floating around in my head and then when I would try and put them to paper they just wouldn't sketch out right. So this was the idea I settled on in the end. Not the word exactly but pretty close.
The writing says 'Her beauty was magnified by her sadness'.
I used a rose stamp for the background to give it a bit of texture. Her hair is inspired by a friend who recently went that colour and I thought it would look great in a painting instead of the usual hair that I would do.
Normally for Illustration Friday I would do it in the style of 'children's art' but this week my idea took me somewhere different. I'm not really sure what you would call this but it is another entry in my new journal that I just started. Anyway hope you like it!
