Ink Angel in Colour by Amanda Woodward

I found Amanda while browsing through Flickr. She is an illustrator based in Edmonton, Alberta. Her style resonated with me. I asked her why she was drawn to angels (pun intended) and her reply was: “Angels make me think about being able to fly and I like that feeling so I draw them from time to time :)” Check out the illustrations gallery on her website for more.

I came across the incredible fantasy watercolors of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. Check out her entire angel art gallery. I had a tough time deciding which one to show here (following her guidelines for borrowing her images). Finally I settled on this one of Archangel Uriel for the colors and detail. It’s very powerful and even a little unsettling, I think, but in sacred texts of the world angels are often seen as fearsome. Personally, I think it’s just that their energy is sometimes so overwhelming when they first attune to you that it can be terrifying. (Been there, done that.)

UPDATE 7/5/08:  I was browsing through the art section of my local Barnes & Noble the other day and found an amazing how-to-draw-fairies-and-angels book.  It was by none other than Stephanie Pui-Mun Law!  Check it out: Dreamscapes

Mary Hillier, also known as Sunladyart, is an artist from Louisiana who does vibrant paintings of flowers, animals (especially greyhounds), still life’s, etc. I just discovered she paints angels as well, and I was already a fan. 🙂 Check out the angel art collection on her website. They are really wonderful!

I am currently running a contest for angel artists on Votigo that ends August 18, 1997. The winners are selected by viewer votes. There is a lot of interest in archangel images from what I can tell from search terms being used to come to this page. I’ll give the top 5 winners exposure on this and my other angel-related web pages and blog. If you can list the art on eBay, ArtbyUs, or Cafepress that’s best, but I’ll highlight the winners in any case. Please click on the link below to go to the contest.
