Elana by Aurella Elana by Aurella
Size: 8 x 10"
Medium: Watercolor and Ink
eBay Link: [link]

This is the result of my progressive painting experiment! It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work so I probably won't do it again lol. This is my Christmas witch. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm trying to do all the holidays and seasons because I'm planning a calendar for 2009! I want to do both a witch and a mermaid calendar, and this will of course be the December witch. The next thing on my list to do is a December mermaid so stay tuned! And thanks so much for looking. :hug:

The beautiful pose was referenced from the fantastic stock of Amber :iconpiratequeen-stock:!!!

niiice colors and always a ton of little details not be over looked! you really have a keen knack for assembing all the right bits into a paiting so they are more like little snapshots of a moment, rather than just a prety posed figure! Yummy colors and the cats are cute!... i went to the painting progress page and that was awesome to see the progress of the piece! =D

Thank you so much!! I'm glad you enjoyed it! And you really described what I try to capture in my paintings! I was talking to my mom about it the other day and I really try to show you a moment in time...almost something that you're not supposed to see. Like you're walking through a forest and you just happen upon a witch or mermaid and she stops what she's doing and smiles at you! So I'm glad you get it. :hug:

:jawdrop: This just looks spectacular! All the details are just, :faint: wow! Each Chrismas decoration, from the little ornaments to the flowers, the stockings, even the walls look absolutely wonderful. And Elana looks so adorable in her Christmas outfit with such festive colors and those cute holly socks. And who could forget her two companions? Ah they look adorable! Everything does! Amazing job! :clap: :w00t:

Gah, now I feel like starting a fire in my fireplace and curling up with Artemis (my kitty). :giggle:

Awww thank you!! I know, I wanted to cuddle up with my two kitties in front of the fire after this as well! They're actually depicted in the picture. I have two tuxedo cats! But we don't have a fireplace seeing as we live in an apartment lol. I can't wait until I have a fireplace though. I just love them! Thank you so much for your kind words. You're just the best! :hug:

Haha, definitely! Aww, they sound so cute! Tuxedo cats? I think Artemis is like that too! He's got a white chest that comes right up to his chin, but the rest of him is black (except he has socks). I love black and/or white cats!

It's nice having a fireplace, but not absolutely necessary Just a nice comfy place where you can wrap up and fall asleep (and have hot coco!). :giggle: Ah, and always, it's my pleasure! :smooch: :heart:

Thank you so much!! I was a little scared of the fire in the fireplace. I had never painted it before and I'm generally scared of painting anything that I can't ink with definite lines lol. My boyfriend made me redo it a couple times! I appreciate your comments. :hug:
