The Whispering Wood, was commissioned of me by a client who shares my love for George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. This particular scene occures at the end of A Game of Thrones. Catelyn Stark, Robb, Greatjon Umber and Theon Greyjoy capture the Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister at dawn.
I used cooler blues and hues of yellow, to better represent a cool sunrise, unlike it’s opposite, the sunset, which usually is painted in shades of warm yellow, orange and red.
The piece was painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Intuos3 tablet.
The painting was created by Mathia Arkoniel in 2011.
