It's time for another beautiful release over at Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.

This new image is called 'Reverie' it is a beauty and comes in at 7" x 10" or 17.8 x 25.4 cm, so bigger than usual with lots of detail. I kept this image at the original size which is almost A4.

I wanted to create a kind of other worldly fantasy look and also try to keep to a limited colour palette.

I used Spectrum Noir Pencils to colour this beauty and as my favourite colour is green, I decided to use this as the dominant colour.

I used about 8 different shades of green along with some yellow, orange and peachy naturals for the main image.  I then used green, yellow and blue adirondack inks around the edge and sprinkled some cream/gold frantage around.

I really fell in love with this image and she is now framed and sitting proudly on my craft desk.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to take a peek at the lovely work by my team-mates.

There is also a 2250 members party this easter weekend, so pop along for fun, games and prizes.
