Escorting the Spirit of Summer by Sweet-Bread Escorting the Spirit of Summer by Sweet-Bread
15x22 Strathmore wet media board + Daniel Smith watercolor

Every Spring he travels far to find and return the spirit of summer to his land. Every summer is filled with bliss and family. Every fall is filled with grief and inevitable mourning. Every winter is filled with preparations to do it all over again.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-17
Suggester says: "The attention to detail is mesmerising. The atmosphere and weather create a gorgeous focus and bring chills of cold. And those colors - the pale yellow of summer stands out so beautifully among the blues of winter; the color choice further enhances the sense of fragility the female character has about her."

I like the curly-white-hair cape and the color choice. Very cold.

Simply stunning.  Nothing conveys that ethereal quality quite the same way watercolors do- and your treatment of the media is masterful.

Yeah I feel like something about that inherent randomness that watercolors have makes them work really well for portraying that sort of dreamy atmosphere.
