IF: poise



she knew she owned the room and could get anything she wanted. now step aside and let the lady pass...

My entry for Illustration Friday, the theme is poise. I had to look it up to get the definition right...

i chose to run with: ease and dignity of manner; self-assurance; composure...

I love the simplicity here.
The colours, stle and composition.
Everything just right. Indeed a great "poise" piece.
Joseph, your illustrations always so poise, attractive and very very beautiful!

I'm with the previous commentors (commenters? commentars?)--all your work has a similar dignity and self-assurance... but this one in particular is gorgeous.

her face is intense and intelligent, with a touch of vulnerability, well done.

I agree, there is something seductive about her gaze. I hope you are sleeping better.
