Concept
I wanted to do a series of portraits of the more tragic stories in fairy tales... only to get completely distracted by an idea for a portrait of Odette. I went for more of a swanlike appearance for her, with the long throat and the pale skin.

Materials
Cut paper, real crystals, bits of silver chain, silk tissue, and broken pieces from an old necklace. Watercolors and colored pencils as well. What's not shown in this is a hand sculpted frame to go with it, along with a few additions to make the piece more balanced on the bottom right area.

Awards
N/a

Prints
Unfortunately the piece relies heavily on the frame to keep it balanced, so I never did make prints of it.

Original
Seems to have gone missing.

Side note
It's heavy. Beyond heavy.

umm I have the frame all planned out, it's really kind of long and complicated? But basically I'm making a shadowbox for it.
