Ghost Field by emla Ghost Field by emla
watercolor and gouache, 11x7.5"

It's been too long! Reposting this from my blog post yesterday:

Happy New Year to everyone, belatedly! I managed to squeeze some time for personal work out of the time I was supposed to be sleeping; the result is the image above. I took some WIP photos as I went, so perhaps I can pull them together into something later.

One of the things I enjoy most about doing these skeleton character paintings is that I feel like I really get to play with color and stylized forms... I feel like I should try doing some paintings with more of the costumes/outfits showing.

If Trina Schart Hyman had nightmares, this is what they would look like.  Nice work.

This is great! I really like the warm/ cold contrast and the details in her collar and hair jewellery, awesome job on the skull too, the shading turned out so realistic!

Simply wonderful. Not only topic is interesting, but the colors - oh man. I love those earthly tones and the blue shades complete them very nicely. I don't have much experience with gouache - what parts of this are watercolour and what are gouache? This seems like a fine medium and you use it very well. Love the piece ;]
