Artwork Description

With this piece I was trying to work in what I felt was a traditional faery tale style. The drawing is made with watercolour, gouache and coloured pencil.

Awww.. it's so cute! Such a nice little scene. I like the disgruntled little faun. The colors work nicely. Almost reminds me a bit of Froud.

Those trees are superb! Deserves Editor's Pick for sure. You are so good at these structures/textures. I admire your talent. Arthur Rackham meets Froud but in a totally original way. Wow. I wish I could do this. You are now one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing.

James - they are definitely on their way to the goblin market Smile I'd love to paint that one but the idea is just so big that I haven't quite got it narrowed down yet.

Kort - that's a great idea. I'll have to get some photos up there. The escarpment is a very magical enviroment.
Socar - hey, you could always commission a piece Wink
Christopher - thanks you sir.

If I had to pick a favorite that you've posted here at Epilogue, this would be it. Post some more soon please! I love your work.
ps. Include a few photos of the "Niagra Enscarpment" area on your website so we can all see the inspiring landscape in which you live. 8^)

Thanks again everyone. Meredith, I get the darks by using sepia watercolour first as a sort of under drawing and then fill in the holes with colour. Sepia is nearly black when used at full strength. I think it looks a little warmer than using black ink the way so many illustrators did in years past. I think many of them must have thinned down their ink so as to avoid a dark black line which can really over power a picture if you aren't careful. Winsor Newton Sepia Watercolour.

Lovely use of green, Larry. And it has the magic of Lee and Froud's work.

Larry, how do you get your watercolors so dark? And where's the goblin market picture? Smile

Socar, thank-you so much. I sold this one last year at Gencon. It went to a good home Smile

WOW! What a neat idea...and beautifully executed to boot! I could just stare at this for hours!

Art at its best.
