…inspired by the song ‘Henry Lee’ by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, featuring PJ Harvey.
‘Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee
Till the flesh drops from your bones
For the girl you have in that merry green land
Can wait forever for you to come home
And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee’
Graphite, charcoal and Photoshop.
This girl was inspired by Summer Finn from 500 Days of Summer… but then I think this wintery Auckland weather had some effect on me.. and so Summer became Winter. 😀
A sketch from Drawfest in Feb 🙂 I will add some colour to this when I have time 😀 and gonna explore more varied lineworks from now on..
… and here is a coloured version of Winter 🙂 done in Photoshop.
note to self: need to keep experimenting with brushes and layers ❤ really happy with the texture of the background
just a b/w sketch 🙂 drew this while watching music vids on C4… i think i should do that more often.. lots of great inspirational imagery
