Last night was Walpurgis, also known as Walpurgistnacht. It’s a hoilday based in European tradition. It could be Catholic or Pagan, depending on how it’s celebrated. Walpurgistnacht, according to Wikipedia: ‘In Germany, Hexennacht (“Witches’ Night”), the night from 30 April to 1 May, is the night when witches are reputed to hold a large celebration on the Brocken and await the arrival of spring and is held on the same night as Saint Walpurgis Night (Sankt Walpurgisnacht).’
In honor of Walpurgistnacht, here’s an illustration. Hand drawn, pen and ink.
Snowed in today, which meant having the whole day to work on drawings, etc. Only I was feeling sort of moody. That was due to a number of factors. So I did this warm-up sketch. It’s called ‘Witch In Woods’ only for lack of coming up with a better title. Done in pen and glitter watercolor.
