Idea of work
I painted this work as a gift to my ex-girlfriend. But while I was painting, we parted with her, and the work remained with me, which is both sad and not at the same time.
History of creation
And after a while, when I participated in an exhibition in Langres, France, this work (like four more) was sold without my knowledge. And my correspondence, which I conducted for a whole year trying to return my work, did not lead to anything (( So this work still left me, although not in the direction that was originally intended. But, I am one of those who cannot just part with my works and years later, I drew it again, and in my opinion it turned out even better ))
From a technical point of view, in addition to pencil and pen, I used watercolor, which brought in a more festive mood. I constantly want to use watercolor in other works, but sometimes it seems superfluous, and sometimes I am afraid to spoil the general style that I have already formed.
There are plans to use watercolor more often and develop the gift theme to some kind of series. Or create some kind of postcards for various holidays.
