Goldberry (revisited)
I am reading The Lord of the Rings to my youngest son. Came across Goldberry and thought 'I need to paint her'. Apparently, I did so before. Let's say I made some progress since I last painted her, 9 years ago.

First project (partly) with my Wacom Cintiq Pro 16". Loving it, takes some getting used to from my old Intuos 3 (which died on me after 13 years).

Sigurd
Commissioned art

An organic triptych depicting a part of Norse mythology's Sigurd legend. Left we see the smith Regin reforging the sword Gram. Center; Sigurd slays the dragon Fafnir with Gram. Fafnir is also the brother of Regin but stuck in a different form. Right; Sigurd and Regin sit by the fire, roasting Fafnir's heart. Sigurd is undressed, his clothing soiled with blood and dirt. Sigurd has touched the roasting heart to see if it is cooked. He burns his finger and sticks it in his mouth, this way ingesting dragon blood. Suddenly he understand the birds who are singing in the trees around him. They speak of Regin, who wants to betray Sigurd, kill him and steal the dragon gold. Sigurd pulls out the sword Gram and decapitates Regin.

In a nutshell, there are many version of the tale I believe. This one was inspired by a runestone not far from where my client lives;  the Ramsund carving.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigurd_s… (Sö 101, the Ramsund carving)

Black ink and watercolour on 300gr Canson watercolour paper.
Original size: 59cm x 30cm

Woods, virtual plein air
Trying to get into watercolours again. Scenery from a personal photograph. Really enjoying the unforgiving nature of watercolours. Much to learn!
