White Lady by aruarian-dancer White Lady by aruarian-dancer
Ink & watercolor on vellum (140 lb.) 8.5" x 11". Larger piece for a change. ^^; And a darker theme, which I love as much as the light and whimsical. This piece is for the auction event in the theme of "White Lady" coming up at one of the artist collectives that I belong to, called Femme Thou Art Collective. It's coming up on August 19, and it is an all-original event by member artists. It's my first time participating. ^_^

Since the theme was "White Lady", I immediately thought of the ghost story involving a lady in white that seems to be found just about everywhere in the world, the Angolan White Lady butterfly, and the nickname for a certain illicit drug that I will not mention by name here. *giggles* I thought about giving her a Catrina face (Day of the Dead skull paint), but got lazy and went for a more realistic skull paint of a sort. I've always wanted to paint a gray, dead fish eyes in my illustration, and this one seemed like a good time for it. ^^; I had lots of fun with this one after doing nothing but flower sprites ACEOs for the past week. I actually love doing darker themes, so this one got done pretty quickly. *happyhappy*

I love this piece it's gorgeous! I was wondering, for my drawing class I have to copy other artists work but it's not distributed or sold or anything it's just for practice, would it be okay if I used this to copy?

Very beautiful piece. The flowers in her hair are simply gorgeous. :love:

What does it take to be part of the Femme Thou Art group? I love their themes!

Thank you kindly. ^^

You can apply with your portfolio online (via link) or dA gallery at their facebook page -- I think they have the application info listed in the notes.  They have people come and go, so when there's an opening, they'll look for new candidate.

Wow. It has so much detail and the colors. I love how she looks so innocent at the same time and her eyes seem closed at the same time as opened. 100% Amazing.
