Last week I posted a rough sketch inspired by a terrifying and beautiful dream. In the dream I was surrounded by water and above me were flying figures that I can only describe as being "spirits". The sky was bright orange and pink and one of the spirits was looking at me. In my dream I remember thinking that the world must be ending.
When I woke up I knew I wanted to make this dream a painting.
I plan on making this a large scale mixed media piece, but before I start, I want to make sure I have each element of the painting carefully planned out. Here's my first draft of one of the spirits I plan to have in the painting:
Her face isn't turning out quite like I want it to, which makes me happy that this is just a draft. Hoping to get started on the full scale painting as soon as I finish my wildflower commission! Stay tuned :)
