Happy holidays! As is traditon, here is Solstice the Gryphon celebrating the winter holidays with her friends. This year she and the others decided to add a bit of warmth and light to the dark forest, offering a glow of hope to any who feel the world has become too dark and cold.  It seems that this year in particular is in need of a few candles.

This is available in the DA Print shop as greeting cards!  You can also email it to friends and family if you'd prefer to send an electronic version.

Watercolor on soft-press Fabriano, 7.8 X 11 inches

Edit: Here's a step-by-step process blog post showing the painting in about 6 steps: featherseeds.blogspot.com/2014…

Beautiful, Bren, I know you mentioned in one of the wip images that you were taking your time with this and I think it shows! Love the soft light and those lovely dark purple shadows.

Thanks! I really wanted to play with warm and cool colors. I find that usually when I do firelight, I go way overboard with the yellow, so I made sure to tone it down with this one.  Also, I am IN LOVE with this soft press paper.

Ha ha, I was trying to figure out what was going on with the raven's beak and then I enlarged it and saw that he has a chicadee on his shoulder.  I LOVE IT!
