Old winds of autumn
I have worked further on my “Winds of Autumn” concept. (Initially done quickly with water-soluble pastels on cotton paper.)
I have chosen a proper expression and anatomy features for the character, a tree elemental, depicted during the autumn season.
The decoration is a real wood carving motif I saw in a book.
I have chosen to render this work in a more painterly style, emulating my own traditional technique in acrylics/oils.

OBS: In order to have this more traditional approach, I have also worked in a more traditional way during the process: starting with a chiaroscuro foundation, then under-painting, then coloring and detailing.
