This Piece is part of the “Welcome Stranger” collection. The inspiration behind this collection was capturing all the intimate moments of a first encounter with an intriguing stranger. In this case it’s a beautiful woman.
The featured piece from that collection is called “Glimpse”—this is my attempt to capture the moment when two strangers become aware of one another and their eyes meet for the first time.
I spent a lot of time working on the expression the eye is giving and the appearance of makeup. The eyeshadow and mascara allude to where she may be and what she might be doing. I like drawing these kind of encounters because they add storytelling to my art. These are the type of moments we all have and minimizing the amount of face that is shown lets us fill in the rest of the face in our mind.
