Forest Queen - Digital Painting

I’m preparing yet again for another event this weekend, April 12-13th. In preparation I’ve been madly working on new artwork for you. My newest is this one, “Forest Queen”.

As always I started from a black-n-white thumbnail, though this time I didn’t create a batch like I usually do but quickly decided on the composition and moved into adding color. Noah’s Art Camp has gotten me into that wonderful habit. The color pallet was inspired my some of Eyvind Earle’s work.
