Blossoming Dreamer by Zindy Blossoming Dreamer by Zindy
This drawing is dedicated to a friend who always made me feel good about my pastel drawings, no matter how unrealistic or imperfect they were. Thank you Pauline!♥

This is my first pastel portrait drawing in years. It was a bit strange to work in pastel only again but I began to remember why I loved pastels so much to begin with.
The drawing is actually based on a photo of myself, from Halloween last year where I was dressed up as a Autumn Fairy:

I wanted it to be a bit more spring like and to represent the new beginnings in my life that are happening.
A reminder to hold on to my dreams and keep believing, always.

Made with soft pastels.
30x40cm |12x16"
