Dream Catcher by JenniferHealy Dream Catcher by JenniferHealy
Was curious to see an old digital painting of mine completed in my traditional colored pencil style. Was fun!
The original concept for this derived from my childhood. My mother used to hang dream catchers above my bed when I was a little girl because I had trouble sleeping. Somehow the thought of catching the bad dreams in the web and the good dreams escaping though the hole was comforting to me.

Materials used:
Faber-Castell Polychromos
Panpastels
Stonehenge paper

Her face looks so young and innocent, yet wise and worldly at the same time. The glow that seems to exude from her face is a beautiful, ethereal touch. The details in the braids and feathers and dreamcatchers makes her seem like some divine force fromthe earth--and all very delicately done with graceful lines and soft shading. Beautiful!

love how the hair seems to gently flow away from her face, like a soft wind is caressing her as she sleeps. 
Perfectly reflects the idea of a dream catcher.
