Gazing Into Your Eyes by MayumiOgihara
Gazing Into Your Eyes

"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 worked on her face too long and I didn't have time to draw the rest. I'll try finishing it later. I apologize I have watermark right in the middle of all my Sketch Fest sketches. I had to deal with a very unpleasant arttheft issue and that led me to decide to do this. It's not imposibble to remove watermark if someone wants to, but I hope this will reduce my headache in the mean while.

Enchanted Visions is a project created in 2009 by Amy Brown and Jessica Galbreth. It began as a simple, amusing game between two friends and evolved into something more... Every month a new theme is given to inspire the participating artists. The artists then create a new artwork for that theme. The only rule is that the art submitted must be a new artwork created specifically for the theme. Artists do not have to participate every month, and are encouraged to work on previous themes. Enchanted Visions is not a contest. It is a tool to help keep artists inspired, creating, and hopefully having fun.

Mayumi Ogihara 荻原真由美
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Canada
I'm a self-taught pencil artist, originally from Japan, and currently living in Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. Born in 1965, happily married with two sons.

Art has always been a part of my life. Many of my family members have artistic and creative minds, and ever since I was a child, I have been influenced by their beautiful works.

I like all sorts of arts and crafts, but I particularly enjoy drawing. I've always been fascinated by the simple beauty of art created using nothing more than a pencil and paper.

In the beginning of my drawing career I was mainly working on portraits, but in recent years, I've discovered a passion and love for creating fantasy themed art. The majority of my artwork is done in graphite pencil. I also work with coloured pencils and other media from time to time.


Thank you so much for visiting! :heart:
Mayumi

I'm glad you liked my new drawing "Straw Hat".  Even though it is mostly yellow and golden colors, each time I added more blue it made me think of you.  I remember you liking blue.

Sound like a fun time coming at the art fest.  Keep us posted on that and show some of your work if you want.

Yes, blue is my favourite colour!

Sketch Fest is always fun and very inspiring. I have lots of ideas for my future drawings from those sketches I did in the past :)

Just let me see some afterwards.  You are my inspiration for quick drawing.  I've only done it twice.
