Girl, Kitten and Chicken by Amarathimi Girl, Kitten and Chicken by Amarathimi
Media: watercolour on regular paper.

Winter is not even near ending here in Finland, but I really felt like drawing something related to spring.

Result: this little Easter witch with her kitten and chicken. :aww:

The picture looks a bit different from my other pictures – I wanted to try out a bit more realistic style.

The paper is a wrinkly, because I drew this sketch on regular paper and was too fond of the drawing to transfer it to proper watercolour paper… I should really sketch on watercolour paper to avoid situations like this. :no:

Hope you like it!

Not so original. Little witches and decorated willow branches are part of a common Easter tradition here in Finland. I'm glad you like it. :D

Nice! :)
as you said, the touch of the picture is different from your previous one.
What's the twigs with colourful leaves that sticking out of her back or from the bascket??
just for curiosity.

The witch and decorated willow twigs are a part of an oldFinnish Easter tradition.
On Palm Sunday little kids dress up as old witches and go door to door saying a poem: ”Virvon varvon tuoreeks terveeks tulevaks vuodeks. Vitsa sulle, palkka mulle.” and give the willow twigs to people and have candy or money in return. The tradition is supposed to bring good fortune and health to people who receive the twigs. [link]

sounds like a nice tradition. :)
it also reminds me of Halloween in north America.

A little bit maybe...
But the Easter witches aren't considered to be evil. They visit people early in the morning and tricks and scaring people isn't a part of it at all. ;P

But it is true that Halloween is creeping here too little by little - mixing up with "virpominen" in Easter and "pyhäinpäivä" in fall. It's really confusing. :(

True.
at least the costume of Easter witches do not look evil from your photo. :)
as opposed to the one in Halloween.
