This painting came together quickly. The abstract objective for this piece was to create a focal point of light on an object that recedes into mysterious shadow. In this case the object is the woman's leg. I tried to paint only the most necessary details and render only to the extent that it looks finished.

There's nowhere to hide anymore. Word has traveled throughout the Great Forest that the fairy catcher and his talented sniffer are on the hunt. It has proven to be a lucrative business for the goblin, as fairies and fairy bits have all sorts of potent uses.
My original focus for this image was really just to create an interesting character, though as is often the case, I felt like I could push it further and further. The critic in me feels like there may just be too many elements, all fighting for attention. I am often drawn to art that shows restraint, almost a minimalist touch, which this certainly does not. In any case, I learned a lot from the experience.
