Original Creation

Enchanted Moon

ForestVueGallery 19 Oct 2020

I’m not much into the scary so I had to think about this Halloween entry. I came up with the idea for a “good witch” yet couldn’t get excited about putting her on a broom. I thought it over and substituted the Moon! I think they may like each other. 🎃
This is a black canvas. I drew up the Moon and witch on Duck peel and stick shelf paper, cut it out then traced around it with a white chalk pencil on the canvas. Next, I painted it in with white gesso and added the darker shades on the Moon with grey gesso and a piece of sponge. Unfortunately, I drew and cut on the wrong side of the shelf paper, the stick side was reversed, so I just painted the background without it. It’s not scary but was a fun creation!

Wonderful and kind and full of magic painting.

A classic Halloween witch! Reminds me of the ones you see on old Victorian postcards. Well done!

VK, I’m pleased you like it! I’d hoped to convey some affection in their eyes.
SL, thank you so much, I’m happy you find gentle magic in it!
Laurie, thanks for your kind words! This good witch was a fun challenge.

I love this! What a cute idea. You did a great job with the sky, and I love all the depth of color in the moon.

Thank you DM! I enjoyed creating it.
