In my previous bogpost I described my interest in fairy-tale like illustrations in vintage colors.
I'm continuing experimenting with colors that I'm attracted to and with ways to achieve a kind of dramatic, fairy-tale like effect. I saw a drawing somewhere of a little figure looking at large trees. This seemed to me like a good idea to experiment with. The little woman and the giant trees give me a feeling this could be part of a story where the woman suddenly sees herself confronted with these very large trees and is standing there for a while, amazed about these giant trees/woods, wondering which way to go.


  1. I do love the vintage feel of these images. The muted colours work nicely with the forest theme.

  2. Jodi!So nice to hear that you love the vintage feeling of my drawings Jodi! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. It's so great that you are experimenting and searching, I need to do that too. A lot actually :)

    This illustration certainly holds a story. In my mind she is talking to somebody up in the trees or with a tree itself.

    1. I would love to see more of your experiments Nini, I'm curious what they would look like.
      Tha's a nice image, this woman talking to something in the tree of the tree itself. I like that idea!
