Misty - Nanna's little princess
Today's post features a pastel work of Misty, Nanna and Gran-Gran's furry princess. Misty sadly passed earlier this year after a short illness and her loss was felt very deeply by Nanna and Gran-Gran. Nanna asked that I draw her little princess, Misty so that they can remember what a lovely little girl she was. Rather than give Easter Eggs this year, I decided that I would give this picture as a gift and I have been working on her this past week (in between the above equation). I thought that the symbolism of Easter and the significance of Misty was kind of fitting.
It was bittersweet drawing Misty I must confess. How to depict her in the drawing was a challenge as I found it difficult to get the balance right with the expression in her eyes and mouth. I didn't want her to look too happy, nor did I want her to look sad. I hope that I managed to do her some justice.
