Leeks, sheeps and Stovepipe hats

So this ought to be my final witch of the British Isles, as part of 'Good Witches Bad Witches', since I have made an English witch, an Irish witch, a Scottish witch and now, a Welsh witch. ....However, I am not at all satisfied with the Irish witch so I will sell her and remake her with a very different design. So stay tuned for that!

Now then. When I think of Wales I think of a seriously beautiful language I can't pronounce (Cymraeg), daffodils, leeks, stovepipe hats, wool and sheep. I've told you I don't want any of my witches to be boring stereotypes, plus I want them contemporary albeit a bit stuck in the past, but this Welsh witch has actually ended up riding a sheep, whilst knitting from said sheep, wearing a Welsh stovepipe hat and yep, there's a leek in there too.

Just as with my other witches, you can see the design and making process in the photos below. Email me if you have any questions or are interested in following the project! Don't forget you can follow it all by Facebook or Instagram too.

As a side note, thank you to everyone who offered me feedback about me putting my ram's horns on upside down. I corrected the error! And for those who didn't see it, you can see the incorrect ram's head on the Faecbook and Instagram pages. :)

Next week there will not be a new witch as I have to work on something else, but I'll share it here on this blog and I think you'll enjoy it! Then when I get back to it I will remake the Irish witch and proceed making witches from around the world for 'Good Witches Bad Witches'.

Absolutely nothing wrong with stereotyping (and thats from a welsh lass) I just want to smile after reading your description :-)

I am in love with all your work, you are an incredible artist. You never cease to amaze me, I'm speechless!
My favourite witch is probably the English one ^^ I hope you'll make a French one, because that's where I'm from :)
