"White Dress" Series Continues - A New Drawing and a New Painting

My fascination with the "white dress" motif does not abate, after having created several paintings in the past.

Last week, I finished a pastel drawing and an oil painting with such motifs.  The drawing, titled Revelling, had three floating dancing white dresses, hovering over a plain landscape.  Though dancing, the color palette was anything but cheerful.  A melancholy permeated the space:

Revelling / 狂歡 / Revelling
Pastel on Paper

As for the painting, it seemed even less comforting.  There, white dresses fell and continued falling into greenish dark water, in which the submerged materials mingled with other ominous looking objects, making this little canvas a swallowed scream:
