Redoing Old Art

We are finally kind of settled, at least for the moment, and being settled has given me a lot more time to draw.  My desk is in the corner of the living room, where I have all of my sketch paper, and I just got a whole bunch of new pencils for Christmas.


Now that we have all our things in one spot, I am reunited with all my finished and unfinished art.  I always feel bad when I don’t finish my drawings.  It feels like I’ve neglected ideas that should have had life breathed fully into them.  I then found this:


When I drew this picture the first time I had a lot of inspiration from Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and her watercolor paintings combined with some of my own ideas.  I never finished it though.  I started this picture, got inspired by something else, started a new drawing, and forgot about this one.  I found it again about eight months later, hoping I could finish it, but I couldn’t because my style and technique have changed and looked weird with my old drawing.  So I started over.

I Used:

Faber-Castel Polychromos Pencils

Prismacolor Colorless Blending Pencil

The idea behind this drawing is the girl is falling, but she is at peace, and has a purpose for her fall.  Other than that it is open for interpretation.  What does it make you think of?

  1. I would still love to see you finish the old piece, even if you’re blending an old style with your new one. There is so much meaning to being at peace and submitting to Christ as we fall into His arms. I may be biased, but my kiddo has some talent. These are beautiful!
