Title: The gift
Name: Britta Glodde-Herkenrath
Once upon a time there was a princess. She was beautiful and she believed that her beauty would last for ever. She treated people bad, because she thought that nobody could be cross with her, because of her beauty. One day she came to a place in the forest where she had never been before. It was very quiet and dark, but then a light appeared and she saw the most beautiful butterfly. She wanted to capture him, but when she tried to grab him he flew away. She heard a faint voice that spoke: Didn’t you know that beauty is something you cannot hold?
I tried to let this butterfly look somehow like the one in Linda Bergkvist fanastic painting “Ungentle, gentle”, but I failed. I must say, it was the first butterfly I painted ever and for now, I cannot do any better. Hope to improve.
Done entirely in Photoshop. I used some of Natascha Roeoesli’s brushes. Thank you very much, Natascha. They were a big help.
Comments and critics most welcome.
