Dryad: I’ve done something slightly different. I love the Boab tree, we have them here in Australia, apparently they’re Madagascan natives and there is some debate how they came to be here, but they have been here for a long time. They’re important to Aboriginal people who use them for shelter, food, medicine and art. So I decided to do an Australian Aboriginal version of a dryad. It’s dry season but being a magical being the dryad herself is always in bloom, the tree has the nuts that are commonly used for art and her hair is full of the beautiful flowers that bloom during the infrequent wet seasons. I don’t use colour much and I’m not great at it so I kept it as simple as I could, I just wanted to use my new watercolour pencils lol excuse the crappy lighting I really need to get cooler globes. #folkloreandfairytales#challengebysophy#derwent#derwentacademy#watercolour#watercolourpencils#unipinfineliner#dryad#boab#aboriginal#australia
My love heart girl ❤️
Haven't posted in a while but looking to get back into it. (definitely helps when I'm less critical of my drawings 🙈). Really enjoyed coming up with this one. I've been obsessed lately with interesting takes on more traditional subjects :)
