Green yellow skinned dryad stands in the center of a tree stump.
I am very happy with how this painting came out. I scanned it so while the colors are true it did cut off a bit around the edges. In the future I am planning on buying panel and I will go a little smaller, one that will fit my scanner so nothing will be cut off, it is the easiest way for me to do paintings and get the photo right. I am almost done with my knotwork wolf, I did realize when doing it that while I have the over under pattern done right there is an extra twist that wasn't repeated on the other side of the wolf. Other than that it's looking to be a good picture, knotwork is hard, I have a sketch of an orca with knotwork involved, its only a thumnail now in my sketchbook so later I'll work on it. I want to start work on my 30×40 painting of Epona, I have needed sketches done, I know how I am going to excute it and it will be a longer work in process, I have to figure out where I am going to paint this thing and when. I don't want my three year old to mess with it.
