I happened upon this stock image of Katrina van Tassel purely by chance, and knew immediately that I wanted to do something with it. Katrina, as shown here, is dressed in a gown inspired by director Tim Burton's movie version of Washington Irving's literary classic, "Sleepy Hollow". The gown that actress Cristina Ricci wore in the movie was designed by accomplished designer, Colleen Atwood. I find their imagery so inspiring, and I had intended to make this composite in the style of the movie, but as you can see... that didn't end up happening!
Thank you stock providers for your stock. You are truly appreciated!

Burton one of my fav! cool visual story with the fence and girl on foreground and with the cemetery in the middle and the horseman with the cutted head on the background
beautiful tribute to the movie!
Wow~ such a brilliant, mind-blowing, atmospheric and Autumn homely scene. It gives off a feeling that she's waiting for someone even tho there's no sign of hope. I bet you had invested a lot of your time in this breath-taking yet seamlessly stunning composition, every detail seems to narrate a story of its own. The colours, mood, lighting and vegetation reminds me of Halloween(I can see pumpkins) Oh..that black cats gives a sinister feel to it. Let's get the hell out of here lest she shows her evil face! Once again, a brilliantly marvellous job, dear Monica. I also love your signature style like frame. You're a wonderful and talented artistKeep sharing your AWESOMENESS
You're very welcome dear Monica Of course I loved your work, and it's so full of details and amazing story. Glad you didn't delete it..looking at the comments, I can say everyone appreciated your hardwork Oh too bad..I can't see why he disliked your sweet frame..it kinda gives a very original appearance, at least to me
I'm pleased to hear that you are well, sweet Hazel And, that you're feeling inspired! I was wondering about your dragon piece and if you were still working on it- I'm happy to know it's progressing (however slowly! )
Do you work on more than one piece at a time?
Thank you for your lovely comment, Dork Knight The gown the model is wearing in my artwork was inspired by Colleen Atwood's design, who did the costumes for both films. So you're absolutely bang on. She's such a talented designer, and very much a part of Tim Burton's "look". I went with scenery from the novel- the movie was very flatly coloured... not really my thing
I'm one of those people who liked the look of the movie with the muted colours and Burton's spooky style, it was I think his idea of a love letter to the Hammer Horror films of old. But that is one interpretation of the story and by no means the only way it should be done which is why I like seeing art like yours where different people put forward different ideas. :)
