Dark Shadows by QueenKaya Dark Shadows by QueenKaya
Media: Shin Han Watercolor , brown Derwent drawing pencils

All hand painted, hand drawn, with a ruler, paint and pencils in the Art Nouveau style. I've always really loved Tim Burton's use of color in his films, so I decided to sort of play off of that concept. I love the contrast of color and the way he seems to use it to express the mundane, and even emotions.

I love his striped trousers; the boys in my classes wore striped jeans in the late '60's, early '70's with their boots. This is lovely, and so keen to the Art Nouveau Renaissance that was in fashion, then. The 'bleeding' roses, the scraggly tree on Widow's Hill under the bright moon, and both opaque and translucent washes of watercolor, combine to give this a special appearance. Well done, from pencil drawing to painting. It looks like Depp. Barnabas is, indeed, a sad, but beloved character in his many incarnations.
