silent friend by phoebe-johnson silent friend by phoebe-johnson
I've been working on this for months, but I finally am at a point where I'm happy with it. I made it sort of child-like, using pencil over not-quite-dry oil paints. On wood. I don't know if it made a difference, but I sprayed it all first with workable fixative and sort of outlined it with 8B lead pencil. A bit of an experimental disaster, but I think some of the emotion I began it with managed to seep through, despite (or because of) the anguished process.

I like being a bit more expressive sometimes.

Edit: Hoooooooooooooooo a Daily Deviation...!!!!!!! :blowkiss:

Thank you thank you thank you! So much. For the comments and favourites and to =DragosSulgheru for suggesting me and ^SamuelRaffa for featuring me... :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-08-10
In the darkest hour, the most welcome counsel might come from a silent friend; oils and pencil on wood from ~iPhee. ( Suggested by Dragos-Sulgheru and Featured by SRaffa )

Congratulations on the DD! You totally deserved it too, with all the hard work you put into this piece and the emotion just pouring out of this thing when people look at it.
Amazing job, keep it up please!
