Knotted Shawl

Knotted Shawl is a large colored pencil drawing.  Someone gave me the shawl and I happened to have an old dress form.  I draped the shawl on the form and knotted it.  This drawing took a while to do but I loved doing it..  Drawing is very meditative, meditation keeps you young and far more relaxed.  I used Prismacolor pencils for most of my colored pencil drawings.

Beautiful, Jeanne. You are so good with whatever medium you choose. Love the textures and complex composition. And you have an eye for unusual subject matter--keeps life interesting huh? Hope you are well.
