The Princess and the Goblin Illustration

"Stay in the light, dear princess."

This is an Illustration based on the Fairy Tale "The Princess and the Goblin" in my vision. The original story is by George MacDonald.

As with all the other Illustrations in this collection I'm doing my influence on the original stories. I have been waiting to paint this Illustration for a long time now. Out of all the Illustrations lined up for this project this is my favorite take. I went with warm vs cool colors in this piece with purple and yellow being most dominant. Everything else pretty much fell into place as I kept working. I fell in love with the goblin king and enjoyed rendering him most. I'm starting to see purple tends to show up in my paintings more so now so I'll have to keep an eye on that so the pallets wont be similar. If anyone is asking about why a ball of string is in the illustration take some time and go read the story. It's cute and a fast read. You should be able to read the whole story online as well. Up next is "The Snow Queen." Stay tuned!
