This is a kind of follow-up to an image I did called ‘Magic’.
This kid has wandered even deeper into the forest, and chanced upon The Greenwood Deep, the heart of the wood. I wanted to create a river of power, the forest’s golden blood, surrounded by faery dwellings, all in the shadow of the ancient tree.
I took a long time on this one, three weeks at least - again a combination of many many hours of painting and photo texturing/manipulation. Any photos I used in the process are all mine, bar the little girl, who originated here -
You can view my original plate here -
- a photo I took in a wood called Ravensdale. I just loved the atmosphere and colour.
Anyway, hope everyone’s well, thanks for looking and take care.
