This is an illustration based on the Fairy Tale "Peter Pan" in my vision.
I went with a dark to light technique with this piece. I wanted the "Color Light" to come directly from Peter Pan himself signifying the joy and fun of being a child (which is what he represents). I kept the surrounding colors subdued with a desaturated pleasant-ville look. Peter Pan is a wonderful story if you ever get the chance to read the real novel by J. M. Barrie.
I'm slowly but surely going down the list of my Fairy Tale Illustrations and painting them. Fifteen Illustrations total! Up next is The Little Mermaid.
