The Hanging Tree - Speed Paint



Been reading a really good book lately; "World's End" by Mark Chadbourn (sent to me by the lovely ~el-texugo- thanks hun!). - Although I'm normally a very slow reader this book's so gripping that I haven't been able to put it down!
It's been giving me so many vivid mental images while I've been reading it that this evening I had to do a couple of speed paintings to make the most of the inspiration while it's still there... this one was directly inspired by a scene from the book, where the main characters enter an sacred wooded glade and realise the trees around are adorned by the long-dead heads of those murdered by ancient Celts... despite it being set on a beautiful and balmy sunny day it's a really creepy and chilling scene...
Reminded me of the "..Drowning..." speed paint I did back in August last year; [link] Figured it'd be cool to do another one.

An hour, photoshop 7.
