Like An Angel by windfalcon Like An Angel by windfalcon
She is a symbol of so much to me, a warrior, a dancer, a phoenix in her own right. Her wings close around me in protection and inspiration.

Watercolor, 11X15 inches

If you'd like it as a tattoo, I wouldn't mind, but remember that all artists' work is copyrighted, and if you want to use their art for any purpose (such as a tattoo) that you should ask them first. :)

I translated that verse and it seems very fitting. And I agree - I prefer seeing traditional work to digital most of the time. It just feels more tactile. Thanks!

How do you make your colors so dark/vibrant? My watercolors appear washed-out and I don't get very good darks :(
Reply
:iconwindfalcon:
windfalcon Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
You can get your watercolors dark in different ways. One is to use less water and more pigment, and the other is to layer. Once you first layer dries, go over with another layer. Also, remember that watercolors always dry lighter (a professor told me on average about 15% lighter).

I love the colours in the piece, especially in the wings. There is something very elegant and almost spiritual in this piece but then you did say it has symbolism for you. Fabulous. One of my favourite pieces.

This is one of your very best pieces, in my opinion. Your use of color here is spot on, and the overall composition and design is incredibly fluid...almost as water instead of air. The way the wings melt into the pools of color is a stunning effect, and you pulled it off brilliantly. Well done!
