I have discovered that I'm rather intimidated by large colour palettes and appear to end up doing these "single colour" pictures way more than I should... gotta work on that >_>
Anyhoo, hugely inspired by paintings of Sir Frank Dicksee and John Collier.
Many many hours on Photoshop CS2 and my bf's Wacom Intuos 3

(p.s. the compression has done some really weird things to the details, I worked pretty big for this picture so what you're seeing is about a 5th of a original size)
p.p.s. I will post up WIP pictures and details in the Scraps gallery sometime tomorrow, keep an eye out!
