EDM #38: Draw something related to Halloween, All Souls Day, Dia de losMuertos, All Saints, etc.

Her name is, Anke, and she was photographed in Ludwigsburg, Germany at the "Venezianische Messee," an event held every two years. When I saw her I decided she would do nicely to fulfill this challenge

The photographer is Thomas Frejek and he has graciously granted my permission to post the painting here on a permanent basis. This link will take you to the orignal photo.

My painting does her little justice; but it was a fun one to do. I hope there are a few of you out there who like her as well. By the way, she is just a sketch that took me about half an hour to do; not a finished piece of art that would take weeks.

staedtler pigment liner #0.3 and watercolor in moleksine.


  1. Jim, that is an excellent rendition.

  2. Beautiful subject.
    Beautiful painting.
    Beautiful color.

    Beautiful all the way around.
