"She is like a cat in the dark, and then, She is the darkness....."
Rhiannon, the famed Welsh Witch glorified in the Fleetwood Mac song bearing her name. My take may or may not be completely accurate on descriptions of her, however as this image evolved, I am wholly satisfied with it. Her legend always enthralled me, and I had finally got around to painting her.
This image was painted (yes painted, argue if you will) with digital oils on a blank canvas in photoshop. This is not photomanipulation of any kind. The model used for it was photographed in basic costume to work from. The background was painted entirely from memory recall of the woods. Tools used, Photoshop, wacom tablet, photo reference of live model.
I have to agree with many people, I think I prefer my work using no CGI or 3d graphics programs for sketches and renders. I am moving back toward a more classical means of painting, even, if it is not with classical tools.
