Midsummer´s blooming dress and dancing shadows

This work in progress picture above is from the moment when I was creating the midsummer floral dress design. In that captured moment I was just arranging miniature flowers on the character´s hair.

This floral dress design was completed with Finnish wildflowers. This time the midsummer themed character and her blooming dress was designed to have yellow and green tones.

After drawing the midsummer character the flower dress was then built of the wildflowers that were found from the secret meadow. 

And as a result on the Midsummer´s Eve the character´s dress was then blooming and the shadows of the wildflowers were gently dancing in the midsummer light...

In the "behind the scenes" picture below is captured a moment of that midsummer day when I was waiting for the shadows to come and play... In the pictures you can also see details of the blooming hem.

In the pictures below you can see also that face of the drawn character more clearly. This time the green tones were added as a "make-up" for the eyes and adjusted then to the pale tones and the gentle colors of the facial area.

Looking back and remembering those soft summer shadows... as well as those sunny midsummer days.

And I remember those smallest flowers that can radiate so much light...
And I´m sending you right now light, energy and strength! ? Stay strong! ?
