I have been deep in the forest this week painting owls for Art Journal Journey’s October theme. These two are having a great old gossip about the naive little fairy that noisily woke them up from their slumber. They were very indignant when she screamed out as a spider jumped on her wings. What was she doing there anyway, they asked each other.
Well, Miranda was being brave, very brave in fact. The big fairies told her that deep in the forest there was a wonderful treasure chest by the old oak tree. In it there was a lot of special fairy dust. Now this fairy dust was wonderful - beautiful iridescent blues and greens with gold and silver highlights. Miranda thought that if she could get some and made a wish she would become beautiful and slender like the big fairies.
The spider terrified Miranda and when the owls hooted with laughter, she decided that she didn't like the darkness of the forest and perhaps it would be better if she went home and ate the pear her Mum was painting for lunch. Pears would make her skinny!!!! Also her Mum’s kitchen was full of light and warmth and love.
The owls were done in ink, pencil and watercolour. Miranda was done in pencil, watercolour and gouache.
The still life was done in acrylic, it is also being linked to Mix it Monthly hosted by Conny, where the theme in October is still life with the colours red, blue and yellow.
Have a wonderful creative week and thanks for visiting.
