The Birch Maiden
Donna is allowing me to showcase her superb new drawing - an illustration for a Scottish Folktale about birch tree nymph who steals food.
There so much I admire in Donna's work, apart from it's technical excellence and physical beauty. It is intelligent and informed and captures the heart, and soul, of the subject. In my eyes she a true heir to the Victorian Storybook Illustrators I fell in love with. Like all of Donna's work, the more you look , the more you see in it.
I love the rendering of the birch bark, the way the sprite is peeling herself out of the heart of the tree and the almost throwaway detail of the fallen fruit.
