This one doesn’t have a title yet. It is a sketch I did, with the intention of drawing a watercolor pic inspired by the works of the talented Sara M Butcher. It was first called “Behind Walls”, as I intended to draw a background of a dark, closed garden with a single door to it, the lock all shiny and stuff (the flying key was supposed to be painted as a sort of homage on the glowing hearts in Sara’s drawings).
Now, as it turned out, when I started to paint it, it had its own ideas about how it should look. At first, I failed miserably to paint the woman right, and decided to desert Sara’s style entirely and stick to my own undefined style. Then I decided to add to the background as much as I can of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law’s style (from which, if I am not mistaken, Sara takes some inspiration), and attempt to mix it with Sara’s style again. Most of all, I realized I had no idea what I was doing, how the pic will end up looking, or what I’ll do next. It’s still being painted, and since it might change a lot until it’s done, it will remain title-less at the moment. Rest assure, I lack the talent of Sara and Stephanie, so don’t expect the final result to look anything like their wonderful works.
