Things Are Looking Up
As with Artificial Heart and Lost in A Riddle, I was going for a mood and technique (mostly for the woods) inspired by Jon J Muth's work in his Dracula graphic novel. The trees are pretty good, but my autumnal forest floor could stand quite a bit of improvement. I think I might need a lighter touch. Still, I'm happy with how this painting turned out, creating the mysterious and melancholy mood I intended.
Some of my work on this painting was streamed live and you can watch a recording of that here.
And yes, I've used that reference photo of Sue once before...22 years ago.
