Martha My Dear

martharose

Graphite/ink sketch and photo layering.  It took me about a week to finish this sketch because of all the detail work.  I was going to add watercolor, but decided not to.  Instead, I took a photo of a rose and layered it underneath it…it totally worked!  This is a portrait of my friend, Martha, who in my opinion is a brave and beautiful soul.  I admire her very much because she is so real and honest about everything in her life.  She is an author and fellow artist and you should check out her independent zine Somnambulist.  She talks a lot about her family, friends, and her life experiences.
