Gazing Into Your Eyes by MayumiOgihara Gazing Into Your Eyes by MayumiOgihara

"Gazing Into Your Eyes" © 2015 Mayumi Ogihara
Coloured pencils, pastel, acrylic on 7 x 5 Strathmore Toned Tan.

She is a Maiko, an apprentice geiko/geisha. Their hairstyle, makeup, accessories, etc. change depending on their years of experience. I didn't follow those rules so it would not look right to someone who has knowledge of this tradition. Please refrain from commenting on that topic. Thank you :) Original and prints are available. If you'd like to purchase, please note me.

Initial sketch was done during Sketch Fest #63 www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/s…

I was really hoping you would do a finished version of this when I saw the sketch and to my pleasant surprise you did! The softness of the colors on the fan add such a delicate feel that contrasts beautifully with the intensity of her stare. It really did turn out fantastic :heart:

haha I commented on the sketch before clicking through all the art. lol I LOVE it! I really love her face - the paleness is so soft and perfectly porcelain. Love her lips and makeup, and the shine in her eyes. And I love the fan! So well blended and the design is so cute!! Love it! :)
