Storm of Dornoll – Druid painting complete!

I am very happy to release the final images of my druid painting – now entitled “Storm of Dornoll” to you all πŸ™‚

She was painted for the upcoming Bad Apple Artist Collective group show in Scotland, opening October 4th 2014. The show will take place in the Art at the Hall gallery and the theme is Mythic!
At first I thought I would be painting a shaman, but as my sketch developed it felt much more like a Celtic druid to me, befitting a Scottish show don’t you think?

“Storm of Dornoll” – 10 x 11 in. – oils by Christina Ridgeway

 

The name comes from a female Scottish druid who trained heroes in the art of war and combat. But I would like to think of her as a bit of a mystic as well πŸ˜‰ So the storm she would conjure to help those in battle would surely of been nasty.
