Stretching to Sketch Week #6

I love this pose from Kelly.  It is done mostly with colored pencil.  I have a fondness for using Golden's Titan Buff with almost everything.  And, so, I used it here over the pencil.  It is finished with a hand-craved stamp and brown ink.  For the background, I used a fax received at work that was gibberish and I copied over it a few times because I thought the pattern was kinda cool.

I agree, this is nice! The background gives it a bohemian/exotic feel. I'm visiting from the artists blog hop.

I love this picture. She's very mysterious and haunting. I love the background. It has interesting patterns and textures. Really cool and beautiful.
