Winter Magic by Katerina-Art Winter Magic by Katerina-Art
Winter Magic completed for the EV monthly theme
size of painting 7 x 5.5
watercolor,acrylics,pastel pencil for details

I shared sketch of this a few weeks ago


The enchanted Visions theme this month was a bit different , all artists were given 3 poses to pick from :iconlisajen-stock: to illustrate , i chose this pose

and decided on a winter/fairy theme, i'm very inspired with the holidays coming up and many of artworks right now are Christmas related or wintery related..lol.. :giggle:
went with a very simple color scheme i didnt want to add too much color, and wanted the rose in the globe to stand out, i did the background a bit different from my sketch and instead of adding falling snow i did more of a star night with little orbs background.

When i sketched this i was thinking a lot of my mom's roses during winter time we leave them outdoors and one snowy winter one blossomed it was red and beautiful and was thinking a lot of that and how magical it is to see that in winter :)

hope you like the finished painting :)
have a good weekend everyone :hug:

this is really nice, I always love the way you contrast red with one other color.

SO beautiful Kat! Love the snowy blue background and the red rose being the focal point! Reminds me of Disneys "Beauty & the Beast"...ordered teh DVD release the other day. My fav disney cartoon!! :nod:
Did you use vellum or smooth Bristol for this paitning. I am thinking on buying some pads of vellum bristols as I only have smooth...but it is rubbish for watercolor washes! Is Strathmore vellum 400 series good for mixed media, i.e. colored pencil and watercolor? I found a German store that is supplying these US brands!:excited:

thank YOU joanna so much :hug: I used Arches hotpress watercolor paper
for this artwork, i'm running out of it and have to stock up soon :giggle:
it's a bit pricey but it has a smooth surface you dont often find
in watercolor paper.
when i do more color pencil work i use the vellum bristol board
but i have to remember not to use to much water as the paper
wont take it well, i control it more ,i would recommend vellum
when doing light washes and then work on top with color pencils :)
i recently did a little aceo with this method for a special friend *hint* ;)

Love how you did the background - very beautiful piece!
That's pretty cool one of the roses bloomed during winter time - very magical indeed. Can't help but think of Beauty and the Beast and the rose in the glass case. :)
