Wind between the stones – Celtic/ medieval / Avalon inspired painting – wip

I’ve always been drawn to painting pieces that have elements of Celtic/ Arthurian mythology. Standing stones, beautiful women, haunting landscapes are some of my favourite subjects to paint. Below is the beginning of a personal piece which has ties back to some of my older pieces including Irish Eyes, Crow Woman’s daughter,  and my Standing Stone series.

I’m struggling a bit with the costume design. My head says go for historical accuracy, but the heart says ‘make it fantasy’. I’m trying to find a happy medium, but I suspect given that fabric was costly, particularly blue, that this is going to sit firmly in the fantasy bucket.
