This painting was inspired by a city in the trilogy “A Court of Thorns and Roses” by author Sarah J Maas. Velaris was a city that had been hidden from the rest of the world for centuries, cloaked in deep rooted magic that hid the city and its inhabitants from the troubled and volatile world.
It’s known as “The City of Starlight” as well as the city of artists and dreamers, the creative hub of the Courts Universe. The main drive for the structure of this painting was to have winking lights and tiny pulses / bursts of colour popping through, like stars that are winking out of existence. 🌌
