"Spring" Beginnings


Many illustrators and fine artists have done seasonal series pieces, and they still do them. I wanted to do my own for some time. I'm interested in a fantastical take on the seasons with allegorical subject matter. This is a small thumbnail of my idea for the Spring season. In it a pan plays his forest music to an audience of young listeners. Surrounding the group is the ruins of a long-ago battle. The fallen cursed beast-warriors turned to metal, rusting and returning to the earth. Vines have begun to overtake them and flowers and turf cover them in a natural grave.

I want to work in traditional media as much as possible for my personal work, so this will be an acrylic painting. I'm not sure when I will finish it since work is very busy at the moment. This is on the plate though, and I can't wait to get to it!
