Midsummer’s Eve takes place on the 23rd or 24th of June. At this time of year everything is abundant and flourishing. Nature’s lavishness has reached its pinnacle. This is a time for love and a time for lovers. As the sun sets on the eve of Midsummer bonfires are lit on the hilltops as a celebration of the power of the sun. The fires also honour the sun’s decline until its return the following year. Midsummer is believed to be a time when the veil between this world and the Otherworld thins. Fairies are at their most playful and most powerful. On this night a mortal may witness fairy dances and fairy celebrations beneath the full moon, but discreet observation is advised as many a poor soul, upon discovery, has been spirited away by the fairies.
inspiration before I started drawing. I ended up finding a comfortable spot by a stream and the drawing developed as a couple dancing and
some mischievious fairies around a fire.
