In a Forgotten Room

Another very very old drawing that I felt compelled to paint and finish, for peace of mind.

Frustratingly the paper I had drawn on was very resistant to my watercolours, almost as if it had a greasy or slippery surface texture - it didn't behave at all like the beautifully absorbent paper I use now. Painting this one was hard and time consuming, but I got there in the end :-)


  1. What a gorgeous painting! This one feels especially ethereal, like her room is really fading away into a dream and the anatomy is so smooth and delicate. Wonderful job persevering on this one:)


Oh! How did you know? I absolutely adore comments, thank you! :-) I appreciate all the feedback I get xx
