“It started out as a leaf / how did it end up like this / it was only a leaf”

What started as a response to a weekly word prompt escalated into a series of ethereal portraits, aiming to personify the seasons and their elements. The goals for each portrait were slightly different; Autumn focused on form and colour, Spring drew elements and colours from photographic studies of the springtime blossoms, while Summer became an exercise in lineart definition and detail.

Seasonal Pantheon is an incomplete series and has at least one more illustration before it is finished. Check in with @rachaelw_art on twitter and instagram for progress on this set.
