In the Land of Maxfield Parrish

I have to re-blog this because I can’t go too long without thinking in Maxfield Parrish Blue.

Catch a Falling Star

In the Land of Maxfield Parrish

The list of my favorite artists includes in a very large way the illustrator Maxfield Parrish. I love the style he created with under-colors of cobalt blue and black. He has a very dreamy way of portraying fairy-tale things. This colored pencil Paffooney was created to practice some very Parrish-like images and color composition. The unicorn is entirely mine, but the other figures are modeled on Maxfield Parrish paintings. Consider this a tribute to the master, an homage to the things he did that I have learned from and truly love.
