Call of Spring for Changeling Artist Collective
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Mariya Prytula | Share link:

“Call of Spring” will be available at the upcoming Changeling Artist Collective auction “Flora and Fauna” on Monday.

Consequently, it is also my Month of Love entry for the theme this week – Innocent. Everyone probably remembers the formative time when Bambi and his friends felt the powerful call of spring and met their better half. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up and spring is definitely in the air in the South US, I thought it was appropriate to allude to that.

You can also check out the timelapse of painting the bunny on my Instagram page.

Mariya has the exceptional ability to make fantasy more vivid and vibrant. I love the subtle texture and the outrageous detail and realism, as well as the simplicity of it. _________ The illustrations in Little Moss, Big Tree are outstanding. Light pastel watercolors fill the page and invite the reader to escape and all the trees, snail, animals, and leaves are illustrated accurately with soft hues of color. __________ You taught me what was possible and expected when working with other artists.You were so patient with me while working through an unfamiliar etiquette. It was a real kindness.
