This is another 20 × 20cm acrylic painting.

I wanted to take a darker turn for a change, and since I only recently re-read Interview with a Vampire, and watched Dracula (hmm I need to get out more!) I thought a vamp might be in order. So this is my rendition of a vampire girl, still a little pretty but a lot scary looking. Being a bride, she’s got the garland of roses and a veil, but being one of the damned, she’s got suspicious eyes, a deathly pallor and a trickle from her last meal.

Australian painter of winged whimsies; I love faeries, angels, mermaids, princesses, myth, gods & goddesses, cupcakes, colour…

I paint on canvas in acrylic mostly, but sometimes the watercolours come out for a less controlled splash.

    Hey you finally did it…you went to the dark side!!!! This awesome….dark, but not over the top.

  • Thanks Tammy, yeah and I think I liked it!! I really have got the dark vampy thing in my mind now – next one, a brunette with red lips!

    Love it and a great description too. You’re right, pretty but mostly spooky! I’ve been watching the new True Blood season (so good) and have also been tempted to paint something darker.
