Hand Painted Unicorn Foal Wood Box Purse

UnicornFINALFB

Recently I completed another hand painted wood box purse handbag (cigar box purse style), Unicorn Foal.  The design for this painting was based on my original unicorn drawing below.

I traced the outline of the drawing on to the front of the wood box, using graphite transfer paper.

Next I painted the background a beautiful ultramarine blue and started painting the unicorn in shades of white and brown.

Once the unicorn was complete I worked on painting the background.  The original inspiration for this painting is the very famous medieval unicorn tapestry so I wanted to emulate the tapestry garden around the unicorn, but rather than having a captive unicorn I wanted to paint a unicorn running wild and free!

Once the painting was finished the box was given many coats of high gloss varnish.
