Windswept by JessicaMDouglas Windswept by JessicaMDouglas
Concept There wasn't much thought behind the meaning of this piece. I'd been experimenting with a new technique and wanted to play with it. I'd also met a woman with the most delicious knees I had ever seen... and wanted to draw knees. Lo, an angel was born/

Materials
This was another mixed media piece. The dress is cut pieces of paper, each segment is completely flat and using only one piece of paper. The wings are three D, and each individual feather is cut out of paper. The hair is black ink with a bit of copper leafing added to it. The skin is colored pencil, with blank ink for the garter, and the background is watercolor.

Awards
None

Prints
Limited edition, hand embellished canvas prints can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/Vestaka ; they are in a few sizes/and each one is unique and different so please make sure to read the print details thoroughly!

Original
available though I will not be selling it until I can get decent prints.

artist notes
Why did I think cutting countless feathers out by hand was a good idea?

Really lovely and fun. I'm obsessed with the dress! You made so many different patterns look cohesive somehow. Wow. :)

So you made a pretty woman, because you liked her knees! Sounds reasonable to me... This is lovely - humorous and dynamic with a very light touch. Might have been garish - instead it's wonderfully delicate!
