Rapunzel

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Katherine Barber

This is a rather large piece... about 12"x16" and done mostly in Windsor Newton and Van Gogh professional watercolors on a thick heavy Canson Montival wet techniques paper. She's my version of Rapunzel. I decided to give her wings even though she's not really a "fairy" in the story just cause I felt she needed some wings.. Also I tend to think of golden/fair hair in fairytales as red or a light red... always have since I was very small. Probably because I am a redhead. My mom always said my hair shines like gold in the sun. So naturally I think of gold as more a redhead than a blonde. :P Sorry if that offends any of you "golden" blondes out there! The Rapunzel of my childhood was a ravishing redhead. About Prints: Prints of this piece will be available soon on my website www.moonpaw.com Until then feel free to contact me directly regarding prints of this. :) All my prints are printed on archival quality photo paper. They are of superb quality compared to most other average "photocopied prints". In fact they are nothing at all like a "photocopy". I stand by the quality and authenticity of my prints.
