Goddess of Spring

It has certainly been one chilly winter. Don't get me wrong, I love the winter and I am not complaining. But, today the sun is out and it looks like one of those early spring days. The ground is still covered with snow making everything so bright and crisp. In honor of this i decided to finish up my Goddess or Spring page.

I am taking Effy Wild's Moonshine class and this month we are looking at Brigid, the goddess of spring, creativity, unity, and fire. I started out my page with a simple light blue watercolor background. I then sketch my goddess onto the page. I wanted her to have tree branches for her hair, as I think one of the first signs of spring is buds on the trees.

I then finished painting and shading her.

I added some colorful buds to her hair branches and journaled about my week in the empty spaces under the branches.

I am linking this up to Paint Party Friday. Thank you for stopping by and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!

  1. I really like this face. Her expression is amazing. Well done on the branch hair tool.
