This is the latest drawing I did for the Running with Paintbrushes blog. The challenge was to do a drawing of a witch. My intention was to make her more of a hoarder, someone who collects random things throughout her journeys. I really love doing finished drawings, so often I only draw so I can do a painting over it. I love playing with the tightness and looseness of line, when working with pencil. With my painting style I don't really show that too often, so it's nice to let loose every once in a while, and for some reason I don't feel obligated to render everything with pencil. I am going to put more animals in my paintings in the future, they add atmosphere and pathos to an image so easily.
