Thriae - Daphnis by puimun Thriae - Daphnis by puimun
I'm honored to have this featured as a DD!  Thank you!

The final piece of the Thriae trio: "Daphnis"
Detail cloiseups, 8.5x11 inch open edition($16.95), and 18x24 inch Limited Edition prints ($70.00) here: www.shadowscapes.com/image.php…

This piece will be featured in my solo show at Krab Jab Studio, June 13-July 11 2015. The opening for the show is on June 13, 6-9 PM. If you're in the Seattle,WA area, I hope you consider visiting! Information about the opening is here: www.facebook.com/events/666751…

In The Homeric Hymns, the Thriae were a trio of nymphs on Mount Parnassus, who were said to have taught and given Apollo the gift of prophecy. They were called Melissae, bee-priestesses, with pollen in their hair and honeybee wings. Daphnis means "laurel"

Extraordinary detail and colours. The textures on the leaves are just stunning and I like the bold red colour on the thorns. Especially combined with the purple of the berries.... Beautiful.

I've been wondering for a while now: how do you do those fine, bright lines on the leafs?
I don't know how big the original image is, but it seems impossible to me to just leave out those tiny narrow lines with your brush when working with watercolour.
It's a mystery to me, how do you do it??

Most of them on this piece are just painted around. It's not impossible, just need to be aware of where they will be.
