Call of the Unicorns II

16.5" x 20.5" - airbrushed acrylic paint on Illustration board, with Prismacolor and designersí gouache


calendar, greeting cards, Franklin Mint Plate


This was the third in a series of ten unicorn paintings for Franklin Mint plates. I originally painted this image with a single unicorn standing on a cliff against a sunset sky, with the arches coming out of the chasm below. At this point the FM art director called and told me that they decided to have the series go with multiple unicorns, all at night. This is the second version, and I have to admit, I like it much better; it was my personal favorite of the ten.
