She Glows in the Swampy Glade

Creator Commentary

An ethereal woman bows her head over a small pool of water which reflects her golden glow back to her. The trees in this small, swampy glade also catch edges of her light in the low morning light.

I created this work entirely digitally. I was experimenting with building up color with a lighter touch in an effort to create volume with less solid blocks of color. I really enjoyed building up the otherworldly woman, letting her shadows be built, primarily, from the background color. The wet, soft textures in this piece give me a lot of joy.
