Maple Elemental

Maple Elemental by Nela Dunato

Last year toward the end of August there was a really bad drought where I live, and the trees were shedding brown leaves even though it was still summer. A walk down my street with maple leaves and seeds scattered on the pavement inspired me to create this fantasy creature, spirit of the maple trees. You can read more about my inspiration and process on my blog.

It started with a watercolor study I did in my sketchbook, and now, a year later, I finally got around to painting it digitally.
