Here is the humble start to Forest Nectar. I was inspired by a old garden sculpture that was beautifully heavy with moss.
Adding texture to create the moss.
Adding the flowers and filling in around the face.
A field of clover and a fairy ring.
Slowly the pieces are starting to come together. Did I have a plan? Kinda.
Layers and more layers to create depth.
Turkey tails were created by painting the colors first and then using a ink quill to do the fine lines with ink.
The final piece!
The thing I love most about this is the butterflies and the turkey tail mushrooms.
