This is a series of 3 paintings done with oil. I used a bit different colours in each, but still tried to have the impression that it´s still the same landscape, where the misty unicorn is traveling. The animals aren´t even supposed to be too realistic, actually I would have hoped that I´d made them even more "misty", but I was afraid that I´d mess them up completely. Again, not really like I imagined it to be (painting mist is kind of hard) but it could be worse. And again the camera hates me and eats colors and does annoying light-spots everywhere. Argh. 

Painted with oil and acrylick on canvas. To see each of these invidually, go see my DA-account:

Oh....so beautiful. This piece has that quiet, elusive mystique that so many unicorns of art cannot portray....they look so delicate and lovely!

I like the way you portray your unicorns. They’re not the generic ’horse with a horn’ stereotype that everyone else seems to have adopted. You use the creature from legend and yet it is still your own unique animal. This painting is beautiful. I can understand mist being hard to paint, but you have achieved the look. I hope you grow to be more happy with it because overall i think it’s a gorgeous piece. I especially like the slight differences in what is still the same picture in three canvass. Great Job
