Spirit of Samhain by dark777fairy Spirit of Samhain by dark777fairy
6in x 9in watercolour

Faerie spirit of Samhain, standing at the boundary between the human world and the land of the dead, with a passage tomb entrance behind her. The Celts venerated the heads of their dead, which may have been the inspiration for the modern custom of pumpkin head carving...

Entered for :iconavaloncommunity: Samhain competition.

that is so cool. You are very talented. Did you study watercolor, or did you teach yourself?
I've been experimenting with watercolor lately, but it's frustraiting.
