“Autumn Fairy”

by Julia Lundman

“Autumn Fairy” is inspired by my lifetime love for nature, fairy lore and fantasy artists. She is a gentle girl among the fall asters, a little sketch that became a painting. I sketch in the very early morning hours every day, and I am frequently surprised at what emerges. Most of my work is darker and more mysterious, but a few weeks ago, I found myself sketching sweet fairies, thinking about all of those wonderful Victorian fairy painters. I painted her on stretched print making paper with watercolor and gouache with gold, copper and silver accents around the border. 10 x 10″ – will ship world wide!

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
― W. B. Yeats

Julia Lundman graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago in 1993. Since then, she has worked in animation and games as a commercial artist, first in traditional animation as a background painter, and later as a illustrator for games and books. She has recently taken some time to devote toward development of her personal work, inspired by Victorian fairy painters, the pre-Raphaelites, Brian Froud, Alan Lee, Medieval art, folklore, novels, and the natural world.

Her process starts with sketchbook practice in the early morning hours. If a sketch feels interesting, she develops it into a series of more finished drawings. If the subject still resonates, she paints the image either in oil, acrylic or watercolor.
