Elen - stage 1

This painting follows on from "Faeral" in that I have another horned figure, this time Elen, the red-haired Goddess Of The Ways who presides over amongst other things tracks and pathways in woods and forests, sort of a Green Lady.
I have as my model once again Naomi Wood whose horned head dress I have extended to be more like deer's antlers. The idea for the painting as usual is all about the lighting with the figure and foreground in subdued purple/greys against a forest lit by the rising sun, the disc itself between the horns above her head. Basically warm saturated colours in the background against cool subdued colours in the foreground. I will have some snow on the pathway snaking through the middle of the foreground and other selected areas.
This was "drawn" with a small brush using Burnt Sienna mixed with Liquin and turpentine.
