Intermediate Watercolor: Project #5 (The Final)
My inspiration for this painting quite possibly came from reading fairy tales to Lilah, and also watching Frozen over a dozen times thanks to Lilah. I felt a strong fantasy element and I also wanted to do something a little macabre. Instead of being made of bricks, I thought it would be interesting to use faces instead.
If you turn the painting upside down, you can see that there is an entrance to a world below. I spent what felt like forever trying to come up with what would be at the bottom of the painting. I am kind of glad that I went with what I did, because I think it is complementary to the rest of the painting.
Is the girl in the tower held there against her will, or is she making herself a victim and keeping herself there? I think that's what I am having a hard time figuring out. What do you think?
