a wicked salem witch invites passersby to partake in an early 'trick or treat'.
he he. thanks rita, this has been a favorite and even if it doesn't have the polish i might want, i still get a kick out of looking at that old hag;)
What a "wonderful" witch - GREAT WORK - the birds are a nice touch, too
ha! i think i was three when this hag paid a visit in a dream of mine. i was so taken aback i literally jumped out of bed (a hasty move as i was on the top of a bunk bed, ouch!-landed flat on my face. )
This is my ideal Witch too, Jeff! the gaunt face and dark sunken eyes, parched corpse coloured skin with rotten teeth, yep! I dreamed her as a child also, chills me still! wonderfull work!
thank you jade! this has always been a personal favorite:)
This is the ultimate perfect piece for a Halloween painting! The light and dark shadings on the witch's face and hands, the ominous look of the swarm of bats coming from a church's belfry, the cold moon overhead, and most especially the awesome Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin say it all! Happy Halloween!! He! He!
Arggh! Must hide under bed. Love the colour scheme, and the textures, and the layout, definately love the content - wait - I love the whole thing!
one morning last month i woke up and realized i had acquired enough skills to warrant an attempt to honor the scary hag that dominated my nightmares as a youngster:) thanks much for the positives.
I love the way you rendered the skin - also the colors overall. Was this a commercial project, or personal? A very professional look, overall, either way.
