The Girl You See by ShanghaiSarah
The Girl You See
Charcoal on watercolour paper - 7 x 6 1/2 inches

Inspired by a photo of Joan Crawford (1905-1977)
and a love old movie stars and of that era. 

The title comes from the writings of Crawford by F. Scott Fitzgerald

"Joan Crawford is doubtless the best example of the flapper, the girl you see in smart night clubs, gowned to the apex of sophistication, toying iced glasses with a remote, faintly bitter expression, dancing deliciously, laughing a great deal, with wide, hurt eyes. Young things with a talent for living"
Between Worlds by ShanghaiSarah
Between Worlds
Came across a beautiful stock photo from shaman I by LialiaD-stock  and thought fitting for the season.

Graphite and coloured pencil on Bristol Board paper.
Above the Mount by ShanghaiSarah
Above the Mount
Watercolour on 140lb paper - 14 x 14 inches

A quick and not so clear painting of St. Michael's Mount.
Inspired by a photo my husband Paul-Shanghai took on his mobile phone.
If you don't know Paul's work, check out his wonderful gallery.

Steeped in history, myth and legend (dating from around 350 B.C.)
St. Michael's Mount is a wondrous and magical sight to behold in Mount's Bay, Cornwall, U.K.
Separated from the mainland by a causeway which you can walk at low tide to the Market Town
of Marazion. Truly a fairy tale place I have the pleasure to witness most days!
Aslan by ShanghaiSarah
"Wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets his death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again"

                ~ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (1950) C. S. Lewis

Watercolours on 140lb watercolour paper.

Reference from a family photograph of the Lion in Sydney Zoo
taken by my husband and fellow dA member Paul-Shanghai.
Friends by ShanghaiSarah
I am not sure who this child is or of the photographer - but fell in love with this lovely vintage photograph.

Graphite pencils 2H, HB, 2B, 8B on A3 Bristol board.
