The Rhyne Maiden and the Swans

Art by Nancy Farmer

I finished a painting of one of my Rhyne Maidens.  The initial sketches, and explanations of what a Rhyne is were in this post: https://nancyfarmer.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/the-rhyne-maidens/ but in the end I kept the concept and created a completely new image. Rhynes, I discovered, have appallingly unforgiving perspective, and I was quite pleased with how this turned out, but the composition was very much driven by how to handle the perspective. So at some point I shall go back and re-visit one of my original concepts as well. Those who are familiar with the far more common Rhinemaidens, will of course appreciate that I also feel a trio of Rhyne Maidens would fitting in a painting at some point, too.

So, onto the painting: I am still blue! I like the blue, and again I will not be adding any more colour to it.
