A magical portrait of a beautiful Lady….

I love doing special portraits for people, and last month I was asked by a wonderful customer if i would paint a portrait of her as a fairy, with unicorns and surrounded by magical, elvin inspired elements.

                      Of course, I said I’d love to!

Painting portraits do take quite some time, and seeing as we were working to a budget I suggested that we use a photo that she really liked of herself, and I could use that as the basis upon which to paint the fairy and magical theme.

I used photoshop to print her photo portrait onto the Stonehenge watercolour paper I always use to paint on.

Then, I outlined the portrait composition with all the elements she’d like, including special flowers and majestic dragonfly-fairy wings, and filled in a light colour wash.

 

…..I included two flower fairies placing a garland above her head….

 

…..and some little nature spirits (hidden – you need to look closely!)

 

She was thrilled with the end result, and I was absolutely delighted to have captured the essence of this lovely woman whom I have come to know as a friend.

If you would like a magical portrait done, please contact me. I can work around any budget starting from $75 – and can do couples, pets and children as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and have an magical day!

Unicorn Magic the art of Fantasy the power of Imagination

Never before has there been such a need for magic in the world. But there is magic ~ all around us and most of all, inside us, if we just choose to see and experience it.

Here is my magic Unicorn, held by a Maiden. The Unicorn can only be approached by a human of pure spirit. In the midst of the darkness, there is a stronger Light. It is the magic that is the creative Human Being, dreaming a more gentle and enlightened path, conjuring up the true spirit of Creation: Love and endless potential. The original is for sale here.

I have always lived very much within my Imagination, creating fantasy realms and expressing this with my art on many different levels. I believe that Magical Realism is not just a creative genre, it is a way of Life. Unicorns are the ultimate symbol of this magical realm, that resied within us, and exists with that
