‘Lithe and ethereal, they shimmer with translucent beauty. But as the water slowly dries up they slip further into the otherworld, along with the knowledge that they guard. Truly beautiful, they are on the cusp of disappearing forever.’ Words by Nadine Bates from ‘The Little Book of Mountain Magic’.
I created this illustration for Nadine’s book. It is a magical little volume that celebrates the magical places on Tamborine Mountain situated in the hinterland behind the Gold Coast in Queensland Austraia.
I used acrylic glazes and watercolour pencils on specially textured board to create this work.
