Dance of the faery princess.







































Here’s a painting I’ve just finished. It’s of one of my nieces. Originally I painted the background with iridescent metallic colours in a quasi-Klimt style. Unfortunately, the background became too busy and completely overwhelmed the foreground. All the depth was lost. So, I decided to repaint the background and add a subtle reflection. I think the result is better this way.

Ooh I like the Klimt inspired idea!
