Sleeping Beauty

This is the result of almost two hours of waiting for my sister on a lazy Sunday afternoon as she took an entrance exam for law school. It took me approximately an hour and a half to finish this, which is probably the longest time I spent drawing for this 365 Women Project.

Sleeping Beauty. A peacock keeps her safe underneath its wings in her deep slumber.

It’s a reimagining  of the classic fairy tale character as a Maharaj Kumari sleeping upright with a majestic peacock as her protector. I decided to do without the usual splashes of colour for this piece and just keep it in black and white.
