|I have tried to keep all the pages on this web site at 600 pixels
which means you can easily print a page out.
However I have made an exception in this case.
So if you do want to print this photo then you will have to adjust your printer to landscape.
|The Witches Wood (Steps for scale) Painted with a nod
towards that wonderful evil wood in Disney's "Snow White".
Most of this cloth I painted on the floor. The background was painted very loosely first with the brightest light being in the bottom right corner. I then added the trees in, layer by layer, remembering to place the cast shadows upwards from that bottom light source.
This was an exercise in contrasting hues. Whenever I met a light coloured trunk, I would put a dark coloured branch in front of it and vice versa.
