Thanks!!! When I drew this, I just wanted to sit quietly and take my mind off everything, as I'd had a lot to deal with - and to create something really colourful and cheerful but I didn't want to spend time meticulously straining over something that I was drawing from a reference picture. I just wanted to be expressive without boundaries...I started by drawing this face with no hair - the eyes, nose and mouth and softly shading it and then felt the need for a colour explosion so that's where the halos came from...and I added the hoodie idea towards the end of the picture. Yeah, it made me feel really relaxed and happy drawing those halos. They say that about circles don't they? ...about how they're quite calming and how the human psyche associates circles with warm feelings and comfort. That's so nice that you've noticed the stitches that I drew too, in the hood too. ...that you've really looked at the detail. You've made me smile like a Cheshire Cat!
Thank you again for featuring my artwork. I'm really, really flattered...I have left a note for you, on your journal too. I don't mind about a delay. I understand that lots of people are really busy so it's lovely to receive feedback whenever others want to or can...it means a lot to me.
Aw, thank you everso much. I found this picture really relaxing to draw. I thought it would be fun just to try drawing something from my imagination and with plenty of colour (I needed cheering up that day!! )
