Ever since the first time syncronicity lead me to your book: Dreamscapes: Creating Magical Angel Faery and Mermaid Worlds with Watercolor I instantly fell in love with your art/style/. You are AMAZING!!!!!
Ohmygosh. I just realized that was your book. I thought the art looked really familiar. I've thought that this style of watercolor was the most beautiful I'd ever seen since I opened that book. Unfortunately, I am hopeless with paints, but I still love reading that book to admire the lovely artwork!
The many salutations to Sowelo. I love that you've included the actual rune in her garments. Is this just one of a set (or future set)? I know that I'd love to see your interpretation of the other runes, as well!
Ah, fair enough. I did miss that (probably half on purpose/wishful thinking) in the description.
Thank you for sharing it, though!
Here's a random question on commissions... I don't know if there is an art-world 'standard' but when sharing an image that was a commission, is it the artist's job to ask the commissioner? Or by dint of being the artist is that simply your right? Knowing this image was a commission just reminded me that I've wondered this when I've asked permission, myself, from commissioners to share the work for portfolio purposes and such.
It depends on whether the artist has sold copyrights, or signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement). When in doubt, it doesn't hurt to ask the artist, as they can refer you to the proper person if it is not them.
Hey Stephanie, a while ago (possibly on your blog and not here), you mentioned a particular site that was helpful in picking color pallets that one wouldn't normally use.Do you happen to recall the site name? I'd love to try it out!
