Getting away from the Halloween aspect of this week's topic (which is probably what inspired it), I decided to be a little more subtle with my interpretation. I wanted to do a comparative on how we perceive things, and how our perception is often based on context. In this diptych, the first scene is depicted with soft imagery and autumn colors, hardly a foreboding place. The second image may seem to be a bit "spooky" because it is getting dark outside and the road doesn't quite seem so inviting for an evening stroll.
Created with watercolor, Prismacolor pencils, and India ink.
