Sidhe by JannaFairyArt Sidhe by JannaFairyArt
This one has taken forever to finish. I've been working on her between my other projects. The sketch was done back in  winter so are the first background layers. I like how she turned out though it is usually not the case when a painting takes me so long :XD: Hope you enjoy!:heart:
This was inspired by celtic fairy-tales I read for my daughter; there was a mysterious lady emerging from  fallen leaves in a misty forest . She was something like a masker of riddles and promised to marry the one who will know the answers to all  X)
Sometimes weird things inspire an artist most lol

About: DIN A4 watercolor and and all sorts of pencils found lol on Fabriano Artistico.

Can you tell me the name of that celtic fairy tale? :) I am looking for some celtic fairy tales to read, and I would really like to read this one.:) And I really like the little keys in the background and her dress on this painting.;) Keep up the good work!

Very nicely done. The elements nicely reflect the chronology, by the sound of it, with the figure being like spring emerging from winter.

well, all the time and effort were worth it - she looks amazing, and I really love the way you drew the dress - it looks so realistic and really resembles a fallen leaf!

Ah cool! I just followed you on FB so hopefully I can see when/where you're selling :D Have you looked into selling digital files for prints? I think some people do that. Don't know how secure that is, however :/
