This piece came to life after watching Sleepy Hollow. I was inspired by the soft tones and her lovely hair. I wanted to do something similar to an early 1900s portrait. Soft and vague in areas with a luminous face. I also really wanted to stretch the composition with a long neck, long hair and tall trees. I found a lot of inspiration from my reference gallery below and from artist Travis Louie who is fantastic.
My reference gallery for this piece. Most of these images I don't have the artist's name, which I regret. If anyone recognize them, please let me know in the comment section. I'd like to give them credit.
