I haven’t painted anything resembling a story for a while. So I took a breather from painting a portrait today, and did this hour speed painting. It very rough and has small errors that need to be addressed, I’m very happy with the composition and will finish the painting sometime in the future.

This painting asks the question: If a betrothed’s mate got turned into a hideous creature but still remained ‘him/herself’ inside. Could the person get past the grotesque form of the betrothed or would the mate abandon him/her to his misery? Can love be that deep? We know the answer for this heroine.

Let me know what your think 🙂
