Wow, I had not seen this one yet. This is wonderful in all its details! And I am curious to know whether you drew this from imagination or had an actual reference object for the painting, and if you by chance also made that one by yourself.. :)

I never used a real model to paint this series, they come from a sketch in ink, a digital painting...or nothing :-)

The "rough" part of this work was done in acrylics, then completely painted over with oils to achieve it; Thanks for your comment :-)

Like everyone else here, I'll express amazement that this is actually not a photo! Looks like a dream catcher to me, but if you call it a magical mystery tool it must have properties other than keeping bad dreams away.

Many people told me about dream catchers on these ones..The title is a play-on-words from a Beatles' song :-)
