snowqueen by pettryb snowqueen by pettryb
Trying out a little different technique... Actual painting is done with negative colors which are then inverted to this in computer. :)

Available as a print, iPhone case, etc: [link]

If I had the money, I would totally buy this. I mean...I see good stuff on deviantArt, but this goes above and beyond. You have a distinct style with a very well-done technique. The simple placement of the girl and horse with the fading snow flakes is fantastic. And I love that you didn't use a flat white. The image is made up of whites with different temperatures. All in all, this is just a very well executed piece.

I love the idea and it looks beautiful but there just to much empty space for me

There's probably a bit too much empty space indeed, I had a little problem with deciding the amount of background.

Well, this is the very first one I did, so I pretty much just crossed my fingers when I hit "invert" in computer. :D

Beautiful and ethereal. "The Snow Queen" is one of my favorite fairy tales - not sure if this is the same character but she's enchanting either way.

Thanks so much! She can be thought as The Snow Queen or just someone who is a snow queen. :D
