Limberlost by Isynia-Artessa Limberlost by Isynia-Artessa
This piece was inspired by the book "Girl of the Limberlost," in which an impoverished girl with a neglecting mother finds a refuge and hope of betterment through the Limberlost forest, which provides her a means of obtaining an education and supporting herself. I sort of began to view this forest in the book as a parental/provider figure, hence the subject matter of this piece.

A very experimental piece, and defninitely the most elaborate watercolor pieces I have done in a while. I learned a lot about underpainting while creating it. While I'm not completely satisfied with how the treee-top leaves turned out, I am happy with the experiment and the illustration as a whole.

Watercolor on paper.

The print of this piece has been donated to the DA account Artists for Charity, and therefore is not available through my personal prints account. Anyone interested in a print of Limberlost should visit :iconartistsforcharity: and make your purchase from there. All profits go to benefit UNICEF. Thanks!
