close-up of the dryad
Okay finally finished this one. I donít believe I have ever spent as much time on a painting as I have on this one. I canít begin to count the number of hours but it was done over a period of nearly 3 weeks (part time of course!).
Anyway, it started with the simple idea of a girl with flowers growing out of her head. That reminded me of Greek mythology and nymphs/dryads. So I sort of went in that direction.
I think I learned quite a bit while working on this. Hopefully I can apply a lot of that to future work and continue to improve.
Anyway, hope you like it!
