last of the spooky stuff





Ok I know I have been painting a lot of stuff lately around things that are no longer with us, but in my defence, this one was a commission...The subject of the painting was called Billy and was very special to his family. This one is mainly pastel, though I have included a vintage Lonfellow verse along with a feather and some leaf skeletons. I also dropped some gold ink at the end and added a little crackle paste (which hadn't finished crackling when I took the photo). I have included some close ups of the texture on his horns, which is so much fun to do :)
