Anjelica Huston in The Witches by Caricature80 Anjelica Huston in The Witches by Caricature80
As a child I absolutely loved The Witches. Both the original book and film adaptation are superb. I blame a lot of my dark sense of humor from reading Roald's Dahl's fantastic books as a kid. Watercolor on illustration board. 14x19 inches.

This painting is absolutely gorgeous. Your technique perfectly fits the tone of the movie.

I read a ton of Roald Dahl books when I was younger. I remeber that after I had read "The Witches" I was at the public library just looking for a movie to watch. And then I passed by this film that said "The Witches" and thought, Wait, as in the book I just read? They made a movie about it? OH MY GOSH I HAVE TO SEE THIS. It really is a great film, and I simply love Anjelica Huston. Well done! :D

Ha, thank you so very much! Great to meet someone else who grew up reading the Dahl books. I can partially credit my dark sense of humor from reading his books. I actually had a reverse experience about The Witches. I saw the film first and was in the book store and saw the title on the shelf and had to buy it! I think I read it in a day and a half. I couldn't put it down. I wasn't much of a reader growing up, and I'm still not really, but I did read almost all of the Dahl books and enjoyed the film adaptations. Thanks again for the compliments on my work! It's very appreciated!

I love this! She looks hideous, but beautifully hideous x) I saw the movie as a kid and was completely freaked out by the girl growing old in the painting...

Thank you so much! That kid is the painting was very creepy. I like how she found one in a painting in the lobby of the hotel to "extinguish". In the book there are several other scenarios of how the witches get children besides enchanting them into the paintings. It's a great read if you haven't checked it out before.
