It’s finally happened – I’ve finally managed to do a painting I’m really happy with in just one week haha!
I was selected to be part of Popzilla Gallery’s show once again, which was this time themed ‘Foolish Mortals’, based on the Disney Haunted Mansion attraction. I was aware of the Haunted Mansion, but having never been there, was a little unsure as to what to do! I watched A LOT of videos on YouTube of people walking through and scoured the web for images but eventually settled on a portrait idea.
I decided to base this on the Medusa/Grecian Woman portrait which morphs from a quiet looking woman into Medusa but wanted to do a mash-up. I chose Emily from Corpse Bride to tie in with the Halloween/death type theme, incorporating the snakes from Medusa. The premise is basically Emily is still looking for her husband and has chosen to take the Grecian Woman’s place in the image in the hopes of meeting her love. I am finally finding my style – a mix of clean and organic painting with illustrative aspects and finally finding my feet!
