I took my observational drawings of roses,
a knife girl sketch and put this together using my trusty light box.
The idea was to build a background or frame her in some way.
It developed into a Les Skuse homage...
This was an experiment at giving my character a background, somewhere to live.
I used lilies from a still life (recently drawn whilst very poorly and stuck at home),
together with my sketch of a Mughal dagger/girl.
Oh, and a heap of swirls for good measure.
