A late Valentine’s Day watercolour painting I did while half-watching a film about Nazi zombies, as you do. I seem to draw best while I have some film on in the background, though they become more like audiobooks to me. My family jokes that the test of a good film is whether I draw through it or not. It helps to give your eyes (and your brain) some kind of a break from staring intensely at a piece of paper every so often, even if it is to look at Nazi zombies creating havoc.
It’s based on an editorial photo of Daphne Groeneveld by Txema Yeste for Harper’s Bazaar Spain which I loved, but I wanted to bring more of a Schiaparelli feeling to it and make the lips stand out as being heart-shaped.
As always, I’m on instagram and love to hear from you. Please feel free to send me suggestions for what to draw, because honestly I draw constantly and compulsively.
