HAPPY NEW YEAR ! :D

A personal version of this character from the Arthurian Legends.
I've been sick all night so I couldn't do anything but to stay at home for the New Year's Eve… I felt so frustrated that I spent all my night painting something personal (I had not done this for quite a long time ^^' )
This is also a pretext to try some new custom brushes I made and to experiment with abstract "realism"
7 or 8 hours
No reference used
Inspired by Ewa Karpinska, Gustav Klimt and Odilon Redon art.
If you don't know Ewa Karpinska, you should really [url="http://www.atelier-artimage.com/galleries_web/ewa karpinska/index.html"]check her artworks out [/url]! She's an amazing painter who has a very unique way to use watercolours (she's also my boyfriend's mother so I've had the honour to see her paintings in real life, which really inspired me)
