Snow and Frost by MeredithDillman Snow and Frost by MeredithDillman

Snow and Frost - 11x17 watercolor painting

I'm so happy this is finished! It took a long time (2 months) and I don't usually paint this large. There's a lot of tiny details, like painting all those snowflake patterns on clothing dress individually. I was afraid it would never be done!

This is one of the most amazing fan art of these two characters I have seen so far!  The details, colors, composition, it looks like a painting fit to be in an epic fantasy book.

Thank you :) I was definitely going for epic since I don't usually paint more than one character or large.
