Glimpse of Glamour

Hi, I'm Robin and this is my new artsy journal account.

I just completed my entry for this week's Illustration Friday challenge, the theme is "sneaky". I'm trying to improve my ability to portray light and shadow with watercolor - it's tricky because I'm more adept at acrylics, and highlighting is easy in that medium. I still have lots of work to do before I'll be satisfied, but overall I'm happy with this piece.

"Sneaky"


A young girl and her cat sneakily watch a gathering of sylphs in the forest. She's been waiting for this all night, as soon as her parents went to bed she snuck outside in her nightgown and bare feet, and wove wreaths of vines around her hair as she sat in waiting.

Feel free to add me if you like what you see!
