Autumn's Goddess by jensequel Autumn's Goddess by jensequel
Finally finished a painting! :faint: i know it's been a while but I hope it's worth the wait. Anyway...this is submitted for *mizzd-stock & *Lisajen-stock's 2006 Autumn contest using both of their stock (obviously) ;-)

anyway...the subject...

Autumn's Goddess leads Summer's Goddess out as she puts all of the plants into hibernation heralding the Winter Goddess' return. Why is Summer's Goddess blindfolded? Well that's obvious...though she understands the reasoning behind the change of seasons it still breaks her heart to see all the plants wither and die so she is blindfolded to spare her the heartache or else she would refuse to leave and the earth would be consumed with eternal summer...

Technicals:
sketch: 1 hour
painting: 5 hours (I cheated & used a hairdryer to speed up the drying time :shh: )
Watercolor on Bristol with some acrylic white for details spattering...;-)
Original size is 19 x24 inches
details shown here: [link]

when I get the time 7 money I will get a better scan of this and submit as a print. until then...
sorry for the watermark...

I cheat a little - the camera my dad gave me for my birthday is automatic and has specific settings on it to help me out.
