Two New Watercolours

Two new watercolours - Dancing Nymph and The Last Days of Autumn.  I have also included a couple of preliminary pencil drawings.





In the first one a Woodland Nymph has climbed up onto a root tendril. She is dancing to celebrate the late but welcome arrival of spring.  I see her dance as being slow like Tai Chi or Yoga, but when you look away she will be gone.

This next one I am calling The Last Days of Autumn.  Once you get into October any warm day could be the last one, so I try to enjoy each and every one, not knowing when the last warm day will actually be.  Here a couple of Meadow Sprites are sunning themselves on a petrified troll skull.  Lazy Sprites.




Thanks again for stopping by.  More soon.

The lesson being, when you see a woodland nymph dancing...DON'T look away!

Lovely, as always, Larry!

Thanks Thomas. :)

The movement in the first work is pretty. I love how you drew her face just slightly. It's as if she's rehearsing a dance to perform later on.

Thank-you Tessa.

"slow like Tai Chi or Yoga" -- now that you mention it, that makes perfect sense. Lovely.

Just love these. Your style is perfect, opens up a wonderful world. They are so natural (as well as being fantastic)!
