It's an entry for the Painters contest "My favorite tale" [link]

I always liked Brothers Grimm's tales. When I was a child, I loved to read them because of their mysterious character and dark atmosphere. And Little Red Riding Hood was one of my favs! :)
Today I also like Red Riding Hood, because one of my favourite film (Neil Jordan's "The company of wolves") and computer game ("The Path") are based on this tale.

I painted Red Riding Hood as an older girl, because I don't like to imagine her as a child ;) It's a scene, when she was going to her grandmother's house and suddenly she saw the wolf in the forest.

Done in acrylics on acrylic paper, A4 size.

This is so colourful! i love it. The red is so vivid. But my favourite part is the background. Specially in the limit of the forest, with those yellow tones.

I love all the little details you added (like those adorable red mushrooms!). The wolf is really beautiful. I have to say my favorite part is where the trees recede into the background. The colors are lovely, and it adds so much depth the piece.

A nice peaceful wolf...doesn't look like he wants to gobble her. The wolf disguised himself as grandma to try to keep her from gobbling him.

Such a beatiful image, the colours are once again my favorites. :3

I liked the Grimm's tales best too, though this one tale has never been the favorite - may be because it's so popular and has very much other works based on it.

Anyway this work is interesting also because of its little creepyness: the forest is quite huge in the back and the sun seems to be setting: it will be dark soon... *shiver* urgh, I'd hate to be in there. 8''D
