the strange thing is once I had a dream very similar to this: a dark queen tip-toeing upon a field of flowers beneath a castle. except the queen in my dream looked like Maleficent from The Sleeping Beauty, there were no foxes and the sky was lighter.

Is it wrong that I find the figure the least interesting part of this image? ;p
What a lot of work this must have been! So much incredible detail and all kinds of interesting spaces for my mind to occupy. ;)

Incredibly intriguing - at first I thought she was trailing life behind her, but then I saw the floating black castle above the red flowers and I wasn't so sure - I feel like I could stare into this piece for a long time. Love it!

Beautiful, Steph. I like the way this pulls together your more traditional style and your recent explorations into the dark and grainy.

Thanks Steve! It was scary at parts (particularly when I dumped all the ink on it and thought for sure it was ruined!) but I'm liking how it turned out.

The flowers are absolutely lovely! I like how they almost reflect their color onto the black part, and fade out into the grey/white area. Very beautiful work! :)
