The Green Wood

I started this late yesterday and stayed up until 4:30 in the morning finishing it. I didn’t take the time to make scans of the drawing and I didn’t make a color study this time. But that won’t stop me from talking about the process. This is the photo I was working from. You’ll notice that the girl in the picture has her eye shut. So that was one of the first things that I had to change. Also her body position with her chin jutting out a bit didn’t look relaxed and would have looked unnatural if I’d painted it that way. Her costume ears were a little droopy so I changed the angle slightly.

Other changes include lengthening her hair, modifying her necklace,  making up things on her hair wreath, lightening her hair just a tad so that the texture would show more, changed her wings to dragonfly style (Just because my husband said he pictures fairies that way- I believe that he’s a member of the Dragonfly Clan), and added a blue ribbon to her sleeve.
