Fairytale-atmosphere

This is without a doubt the most detailed painting I have ever painted on Egyptian Papyrus. It’s pretty big, 64 x92 cm.
When the customer first contacted me and asked if I could paint something for her she simply said; paint something lavish and over the top and please add some roses! And maybe a lady in a red dress?
I like these types of commissions, they give me the opportuntity to interpret, imagine, think and try to create what I feel is right for that particular person.
We talked a lot together, and I decided I wanted to create a place where she can daydream her way into, I wanted to create a a place with the feel of a magical fairytale for her.
Along the way I have also had to do stuff I have never done before, I have painted countless tiny roses, and for the first time tried to paint bluebirds and a little bunny. Lots of details also means contless working hours, so this has taken me quite some time. But at the same time, it has been sort of nice to be able to escape a little into this secret garden I have tried to create, – also for me.
I hope you like it!
