WIP 3 Garden Secrets?

This is A4, watercolour paper.

Top left corner is mostly watercolour. The remainder is mostly OP over watercolour.

Had read some of The Lion the Witch and Wardrobe just before painting this.
That's why I called it garden secrets. Looks like there's a secret doorway opening up right in the middle. If I ever finish it, I'll let you know!

I could get used to this 3 pics, 1 day!

Love it; the expressions on the figures look so naughty, like they know they shouldn't go through that door but they're considering it anyway. It's wonderful.

Re: WIP 3 Garden Secrets?

This is so much fun - I like your characters, as well as their clothing. There's a lot of mystery here, a story that is developing, but what is it?

Great job! You could leave this one be, or work it out a little more - either way, it's lovely to look at, very ethereal!

Thanks Sarah. Now I need to give a hint of their future through a slit in the doorway.

Thanks Terri. I had thought of leaving it but think the green divide is not really working.

Thanks Mira. I have tagged myself as an Artist Adventurer locally, because I'll follow any lead or interest and work with them eventually.

Re: WIP 3 Garden Secrets?

This strikes me as Edenic too. As in, could their garden secret involve the fruit of The Tree of Knowledge? That was a door of sorts; a one way door!

Hi Laika, I missed your comment! Thank you. I really like the Tree of Knowledge idea.
