Another Sprite for the series contained within this Rainbow Art Journal. This one is a stone sprite. I imagined her body being constructed from piles of stones, like a cairn, just like the small one I drew balanced on her hand. I added in some craggy shapes, like split rock, to offset all of the curves, but I think I like all the rounded shapes better. What do you think? I have struggled to use Daniel Smith Lunar Black effectively to really make the most of its wonderful granulation. I am, therefore, especially chuffed with how that paint choice has worked out in this illustration. I really think that visual texture adds so much to this drawing.
Oh thats a ton of fun!!!! It nicely echoes the stacked stone sculptures I’ve seen! Good job!!
Thank you very much, Sue!
I think the individual stones are beautifully done. This lady, though, she is disturbing to me and I’m not sure why. I don’t like looking at her. Maybe I had a bad experience with a stone sprite in a previous life??!!
I think that’s a valid and entirely understandable response. She is very weird.
