Wind Blossom

Prompt: Beautiful Dream
prompted by: katerina Koukiotis, during Sketch Fest #16 (July, 2011)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

8X10(10X12 with the white boarder) Watercolour on Peterboro Double Thick 100% Rag illustration Board. Sorry for the horrible photo! I just wanted to show the colours even though the original is still brighter(I love it!) the scan ended up greying the background even though it's a lusher green. I loved how she turned out. I made her bigger then my original sketch which was a 5X7.


mikka says: Gorgeous! I really like her hair and eyebrows. ~ Reply?

     Monika Ptok-Byard replied to this: Thank you Mikka, I've always loved doing something different with eyebrows, it always changes the look of the character:)

katerina Koukiotis says: beautiful lovely pose and colors love the butterfly ! ~ Reply?

     Monika Ptok-Byard replied to this: Thanks so much Katerina, especially about the butterfly, I'm still on the fence about that one...not sure if I like the colours of the butterfly just yet:)

Sarah Aiston says: Wonderful :) Love the colours xxx ~ Reply?

     Monika Ptok-Byard replied to this: Thank you Sarah, they are more vivid in person. hopefully I'll be able to capture that:) All my colours where done with layering one colour over another to get the exact colour I was looking for instead of mixing them on my palette, I'm really happy with how it turned out:)
