I decided not to go full Halloween with it. I wanted a bit of a dramatic flair but also to retain a feel of elegance and formality. I've gone with some abstracted violet drapes to impart a feel of regality. I think the deep tones will really make the eyes and teeth stand out as the stars of this show.
I was then inspired to start a painting of my girlfriend who is also of the goth persuasion. So far so good. I've been doing a lot of these little face paintings lately to try and loosen up with my painting technique. I'm looking forward to doing some more this week. Maybe Ray Liotta?
