Watching You Leave

I had originally written a story called The Snow Queen and I wanted to make a painting to illustrate it.
The first attempt was Determination, which is a lovely painting, but not quite what I had in my head. So this time, I thought I'd paint a young person, because the snow queen was young  - and yet again I have a painting that isn't the image inside my head - but more one that as I painted, developed in its own way.
It even inspired me to write a new story, called 'Watching you Leave.'

So here's the painting - I hope you enjoy it.

    The boy's face expression, Snow Queen and a backgroud are very interesting. Colours are impressive. Keep up your writing and enjoy it!!

  3. Amazing isn't it, how paintings have a life of their own. Love the yearning look in this piece, sounds like it sparked the other part of your creative self 'Watching you Leave' is a great title for both I'm thinking
