Original Creation

The Ruined Hunted Shack

Ninoum 18 Sep 2023

My husband wanted me to paint a more sinister scene for Halloween. I found this cool wallpaper and decided to go with it.

I have marked it as β€œpotentially offensive for some people” due to the nature of the haunting (hanging silhouette on the shack’s wall).

I do like it. Tree shadows are okay but the hanging cat? Really good effects.

Thx Colin! It’s a person hanging not a cat. Lol!

I think I need new glasses! It is still great though 8-)

Haha! πŸ‘“ It’s not a really a well define silhouette. Though, I wouldn’t never have been able to paint a hanging animal.

Really great job and very eerie!

Just right for Halloween, good work, Nancy πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

I'm agreeing with Dirk: great for Halloween.
You really captured the spooky atmosphere.

Great Halloween picture!

stunning. I love the grass colors, blue and brown. This reminds me of an illustration you'd see in the 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' books.

Can I ask you about the shadow work on the shack? Did you go back after the building was finished to add them? I really love how much detail there is in the shack, every board and crack is so well achieved.

very nice, great colors and composition, love it!

Absolutely stunning. Nancy, you could easily sell these for $250ish a pop. Maybe even more.

AWESOME! I love it overall!

Thank you very much Sandy. 😊

Many thx my friend! πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸŽƒ

Really glad you like my spooky atmosphere Titia! πŸ˜€

Thank you my friend B!! πŸ‘»

Many thx Jeff!!!

You can ask me any questions you want. I love to share! I did my tree shadows at the very end. I learned to do all the cracks, wood looking boards with KH's tutorials.

Awww! Thank you very much Jessie!! πŸ˜€

Thak you so much Tony! You really think I could get that much money for that one? Where to sell though? πŸ€”

Thank bunches Tom! Glad you like the overall outcome! πŸŽƒ

Wow this one is really great one! I Really enjoy those little details you've made there. Don't know why but the barrel in the middle just caught my eye first, then all other details. Nevertheless, you have nailed the atmosphere here! πŸ˜€

This is so cool, I'd stay there no problem, would be a nice place to e left alone a no-one else would want to visit 🀣 love all of it including the Raven/Crow perched on the roof top. Great atmosphere and mood, think I'd put a pumpkin head scarecrow in the field to keep crows off my roof!

Thank you bunchy my friend Jim!! 😊. I am glad you saw my little barrel. It can get lost among the tons of little details there are on there.

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Niv, the shack is totally yours! Thank you much! It’s funny you’re mentioning the scarecrow with the pumpkin head because I was about to put on on there. But after finishing the dead tree, I thought it would add too much to what is already on the canvas. So I passed on the idea. But it was my plan from the beginning to have one there.
