of her dreams the girl
there was a girl
as she discovered her powers she
once upon a time
than she ever thought
and there was

One more Flying Girl, in Golden Fluid Acrylics and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.
I had originally meant this to be full of colors, but I didn't have enough of the right colors and I also wanted that pale, limited palette look. Plus, when the clouds appeared (they weren't in the original vision) I liked the idea that the stories told floated off into the world to provide rain or shade, to make the land fertile and soothing, so I wanted to keep the story cloud close to cloud shades.
This was an easeful painting. Not easy, because I had to struggle with the colors of the word cloud a little, but calming. I think the paleness helps. I started the sky with more white than I thought would be good, and it turned out to be easier that way than the multiple layers trying to lighten things up. I guess not everything has to be intense. I'm sure there's no metaphor there.
Also easeful is the inspiration. It's another InspireMeThursday goody. Prompts are nice sometimes. What am I going to paint tonight? My brain is kind of empty. Oh wait, I have the Illustration Friday prompt waiting.
