Winter paintings

This week I have walked in the Wild Wood.

 Peered over walls

and been inspired by this magical, mythical landscape in which I live.

More prosaically, the wolf has watched her boy climb trees - the one place she cannot join him.

I have begun work on a new piece - a song of Winter, forming slowly.
'Across Waye Hill'
ink and watercolour

And I have managed two other pieces this week. A quick landscape that you may recognise from last week's photos.

And this :
'The Moth Magician'
I love this one, and am reluctant to part with it. However, prints of her are now in my Etsy shop  :)

All of these paintings are really beautiful, Danielle. I feel some sort of shift in your work... what do you think? I really LOVE the Song of Winter so far... can't wait to see it completed. Winter blessings!

Danielle, your work is absolutely gorgeous - I love it! Have you ever illustrated a book? There are some aspects of your style that would lend your work beautifully to book illustration - although they stand authoritatively in their own right, too.

What talent. :)

Danielle Barlow said...

Thankyou everyone :)
Valerianna - yes, there is a shift. I think it's just that I am allowing the work is be much more personal and intuitive, instead of proscribed, and safe. I'm painting for me, rather than for the market!
Velma and Cenya - lovely to see you back :)
Austin - thankyou! Hmmm, I'd love to illustrate a book, but my style doesn't really fit current fashions. I think hand painted illustrations are almost obsolete in our digital age (at least, talk with professional illustrators suggests this)
