This is the Dreamy Competition winner drawing (the competition I had on my website a few months ago).
See competition entry/reference here: [link]

The minute I saw the submission I fell for it. Something in her eyes and expression, the mix of a mesmerized and dreamy look. I found it a challenge to do the reflection of her hand through the glass. I simplified the reflection of the window border as I didn't want it to take too much attention + I wanted a fade-to-white look.
I decided to do the drawing in charcoal as it's been a while and I felt it would be the best choice to get the right depth.
I feel very happy with this drawing, it turned out as I wished.

The title of the drawing is about how you can look and see your dreams so clearly. It can be really hard to believe in yourself and do what you really want in life.. but sometimes all you need is to open the "window" and follow your dreams.

Made with a soft charcoal.
29x21cm (11x8 Inches)

Hi Cindy
Great work I think. Perfect for creating new Facepaint-Designs. I am looking also for a Face in Front, without any hair in the face. You see an example my profil-pic.
I laminated the DrawingFace.. and after I painted with facepaint-colors an Husky-Dog.
Could you please drawing a Face for me ? I absolut LOVE your faces! :) NO hair in Face, but WITH a little bit shadows.
Feel free to contact me :)
Thank you Cindy :)
