Fairy Queen

I decided to do a challenge today and chose 'Art Creations Friday' - I love the image they gave for this week........ 'Ophelia' by John William Waterhouse. This is my digital collage version.......You can see the original here.

Oh I love this! Waterhouse is one of my all time favorite artists.

I would love to have this print or even print it on cloth for a pillow!

Used to spend hours in my teens wondering the pre-raphaelite corridors at the Tate in London, many of which were spent gazing at this painting. But wow, what a magical transformation... all the pretty inclusions and overlays, particularly the delicate flowers and butterflies. She looks even more like she's sitting in a faerie glade. Love it!!

Your Fairy Queen is beautiful and mystical Linda. I love the fine layers which give such depth and add to the mystery. The little flowers and butterflies add lovely little accents and the colours are very natural - gorgeous.
