Snow Princess



©Alishea Gibson 2012
Medium: Acrylic, watercolor, pencil, paper, & lots of sparkles!

Started off this piece sketching out my version of the Snow Queen from a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. She was coming out so fierce and cold, but I ended up being in the mood for something more girly, fun and well...cute! Hehe! Had a lot of fun with the sparkly snowflakes and they are so complex that I thought it'd be better if I simplified everything else. Simplification is a bit of a hard exercise for me so I'm happy about how this turned out. Scan looks a bit off though because the background is all white.

Swing by my new Etsy shop! This piece will be available there.
