A Seer

Two days ago, I was browsing through Behance and saw a painting that triggered my art bug. It was a digital painting of a seer woman floating in a white, layered dress with a lace veil covering her eyes. She was holding out one hand with an eye on it (the eyes on the hands thing totally creeped me out in Pan's Labrynth and was only slightly less unsettling in Once Upon A Time). So I decided to try my own version. I was especially intrigued with the idea of painting lace, I haven't really done it much. And I liked the idea of the obscured eyes. I painted this in Procreate on my iPad. I like how it turned out.

  1. Beautiful work, Jessica! Your SmartSchool classmate, Samantha Hogg, pointed me in the direction of your work.

    This very much reminds me of the depictions of Saint Lucy, where she carries her eyes on a plate, which makes it all the more creepy and amazing! Love it.<3
