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!
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!
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.
