Gothic Fantasy Portrait Painting: Secret by the Sea

Gothic fantasy portrait painting

Secret by the Sea

Surreal Medieval Fantasy Portrait Painting 2015

Resting in silence, she hides from the world. Her dark secret ties her to loneliness. Condemns her to solitude. Imprisons her to a foreboding sense of emptiness.

She stares up at the blank grey sky as the restless world passes her by. She prays for the idea of heaven, and the notion of salvation. She dreams of hope, and of freedom from her terrible curse.

The simplicity of the wildflowers, and the indifference of nature are her only friends.

The unknown her only grace.

This moody portrait was created with a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation using Corel Painter 2015, Adobe Photoshop CS6, and a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet.
