Artwork Description

Wielding a moonstaff made of the blackest onyx, the Gothic Faery flashes a piercing gaze filled with dark enchantments. With her indigo wings held aloft, she stands defiantly in front of a full moon as her raven hair flows behind her in the night winds.

Beautiful expression, beautiful stance and I love how the moon adores her. I've been a fan of you for some time now, you're my main inspiration...and this is one of my favourites. Thanks for a sight into the fantasy world, Jessica.

Wow...i simply love this piece. It honestly speaks to me and it's quite eye catching. Speaking of eyes...i'm noticing that her's are not the same color...or so it would appear on my screen. xD I really like that...you don't see too much art out there where the subject has two mismatched eyes. Laughing out loud gotta love it

Hello Epilogue guest Smile

Yes - with the background, I did sprinkle salt into the wet background, but then after that, I took a wet paintbrush and let drops of water fall here and there on the salted and painted background - it makes a sort of tie died effect.

this is so gorgeous and wonderful.. I so love Gothic stuff..
one question about the technique: did you rub salt on the background while the paint is still wet to create that effect?

Thanks for all the kind comments Smile This one is one of my favorites. Donna, my secret trick on the background was: I used watercolors in dark purples, grays, blacks. Then, while still damp, I took a big brush, got it dripping wet with clean water and let water droplets splash onto the background. That makes those cool starburst effects Smile

This is just gorgeous! How on earth did you get those little pale sparkly things in the background? I have never been able to achieve that effect.
