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!
