After about a year of neglect of this project of mine, i bring you a new piece from my ACEO fairytale collection, the Wild Swans. Actually i had drawn both this and Scheherazade (of the One Thousand and One Nights) many months ago but when i got to add colour i found out the paper had developed some sort of mould or gathered dust (anyone have any advice/knowledge to share regarding that?) and both paintings were ruined. It put me off from drawing them all over again until today.
On a side note, i enjoyed researching Scandinavian folk costumes so much that i think i'll take a break from the German/French fairytales and do a few Nordic/Russian etc next. Any suggestions?
Pencil, watercolours, white gouache / 6,4 x 8,9 cm (2.5" x 3.5")
