Through The West Wood by Kaelycea Through The West Wood by Kaelycea
Another book illustration, though it wasn't originally intended as such. It was simply something from my sketchbook which I wanted to flesh out. Inspired by a recent gift of an Arthur Rackham book, I was going to draw the trees similar to his style, but I had already begun stippling on the deer, and didn't think the two would work together.

So, another couple of nature spirits. I've been told their names are Sanderson and Jeeves, but the one who told me that is possibly not to be trusted...

Ink on Saunders Waterford Hot press watercolour paper. 9x9.5 inches. Prints are available from my Etsy shop: [link]

I'm not sure exactly, since I worked on it on and off over 4 days. I'd estimate about 20 hours total.
