iv - Despair by CrimsonMagpie iv - Despair by CrimsonMagpie
Fourth painting for my 'dark fairy-tale' project.

This is when the farmer finds out his wife has been killed and made into soup, which the badger almost tricked him into eating.

This part of the story takes place at the end of the day, so I decided to use a little artistic license and make it night-time. This allowed me to do the whole thing monochrome and gloomy to accentuate the farmers despair.



Acrylic on paper, 29.7 x 42cm / 11.7 x 16.54"
