the changeling

I just finished this last night, trying out some of the 'textures' learned in this course, I'm very happy with it. The hardest part was attempting to capture the lightness & translucence of the wings...love the way it all came together. It's 11"X14"/prismacolours on canson watercolour paper (the background I airbrushed with acrylics) I love dragonflies, such beautiful, enchanting, mystical creatures...this was a very meditative piece to work on, not going to be the last one I attempt!

KG, I am not sure where my comments went here! This is so remarkable. You have done a PHENOMENAL job with the dragonfly, but that is not where the sizzle is of this project. It's your amazing background! You are very gifted with that airbrush, my friend. It astounds me how you can do such a magical background like this and I'm so impressed. Thanks for posting and do share more like this!
