Something Wicked This Way Comes

Every month, there's an art auction on Facebook that I'm a part of. The Changeling Artist Collective is a group of fantasy artists from all over the world, and we have a themed auction of original art every month. For March, the theme is witches. I was really inspired by this theme and created three original 5"x7" inch watercolour paintings for the auction.

Anyone can bid on these original paintings starting Monday March 13th on The Changeling Artist Collective Facebook page.

"The Healer. She can cure any ailment. She gathers flowers from the forest and makes healing potions."

Usually for my paintings, I do a lot of sketching and planning before I start a new painting. But for these pieces, I wanted to try something a little different. I didn't plan anything beforehand and just started drawing on the paper and waited for what kind of character would emerge. The result was these three witches: 'The Healer', 'White Witch' and 'Pumpkin Witch'.

As I was paintings these, I came up with little stories of who these witches were and what their personalities would be like.

"She is a White Witch. She only does good spells. She's the kindest witch you'll ever meet. But she wishes that people were also kind to her."

All of these pieces were drawn on hot press 140lbs Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper using watercolour and coloured pencils.

"The Pumpkin Witch prefers the company of pumpkins to people."
