In this illustration, two brave witches forage through a vast forest for the perfect potion ingredients.

The original was sized at 14×18″ (quite large for me), allowing me to really pack these woods with some great little details.  I also had it framed in a black frame to add that bit of suspense to the image.  Fun fact: this frame is made locally and the coloring is made by charring the wood and then applying a finish to keep that color in.  This creates a very natural-looking, textural feel to the frame in the end.  Literally.

Using new techniques including gold climbing mushrooms and a smooth gradient effect on some super spooky foxgloves this one was a real joy to create.

While the original has sold, this illustration is available in limited edition print form in my shop: click here to check them out!
