I can totally feel that childhood draw that you were talking about in this painting. You've really captivated the haunting mood!

I hope you don't mind, I featured it in my journal [link] If you'd rather not be there just give me a heads up and I'll remove you. Thank you and keep making great art!

Lovely use of colors and watercolors (that feels kind of weird to say, haha). I especially like the feel and texture of the background. Well done!

The colors you chose to contrast on each other work magically here!!! :+favlove:

What colors did you use in the background? It is gorgeous.

Thank you!

For the background I used Prussian blue and burnt umber, (with some black for darkness in the blue), working wet in wet.

I do like the overall color scheme. I also like the watercolor technique used here as evident in the background. The overall feel is pretty fitting.
