Nun Of That!
A while ago, an image (moving like a movie not still like a photo) of a nun standing on a grassy rocky hillside, her habit trailing off like a bride's dress behind her, popped into my head totally unbidden. I'm not one of those who have a thing for nuns, religious things or authority so dunno where this came from..but I felt like drawing it nevertheless. That was a few weeks ago and I never posted it as it just looked wrong.
Before New Year, I figured it was because the legs were too long/thin so on New Years Day, eager to try and ease into doing something other than cough , splutter and curse Xmas TV, I decided to "fix" the nun pic. Originally I just lay a piece of paper over the original and drew new legs..then realised I didn't like the face either, and that hand annoyed me and..I ended up tracing the original habit but creating everything new. Not a great piece but it got me started...next few weeks will be tight with a few art jobs to juggle but so far, it seems to be going ok..quality aside of course :)
