Wedding kimono

Here's my latest coloured pencil drawing - of a Japanese woman on her wedding day at Meiji Shrine, Tokyo. You can see a couple of other drawings of her here. This was the first time I've drawn on Arches paper - expensive but lovely to draw on. The green background of the drawing was inspired by a Japanese film called All About Lily Chou Chou.

And here's a photo of the drawing when it was half-done:

Especially the background with the white in front and the dark hair with the light yellow behind ... ie all of it really!
