Artwork Description

Celtic War Triple Goddess, seductive and fearsome, I hope I captured at least a few of her attributes in this image. Mostly done in watercolor, a little colored pencil, and some digital enhancing in the background after scanning.

amazing, really amazing. You greatly captured "The Morrigan" with those crows and the creepy eyes

Beautiful, I love the dark colours. She looks like Salma Hayek.

The Morrigan has always been one of my favourites... she is powerful and destructive, but her role is important.
I'm glad you didn't make her evil, but instead foreboding. Her eyes are clear and beautiful. I really love this.

This image is wonderful it does capture both the seductive aspect and the War Goddess. I personally also see Wisdom in Her eyes. Amazing job.

Thank you for the compliments! While I do own watercolor pencils I rarely use them. I just haven't found them necessary with how I work. This image was created using Winsor & Newton pan watercolors. The only colored pencil section is the base of the cloak, and a tiny bit in her eye area. I used colored pencils in these areas under the watercolor as a base to get more detail and control.

Thank you for your kind words!

Great image, although it looks more like watercolour pencil than watercolours. I think you've captured one of the aspects of the Morrigan wonderfully - The beautiful, but cold war goddess.

Alan Garner and Diana Wynne Jones' books instilled in me a hearty dislike for this entity, but this is a lovely, tranquil, powerful picture of a beautiful, strong, unequivocal but indefinable personality. Lovely dark watercolours too. The night beneath her coat is very effective.

Art at its best.
