Senior Year: Hansel and Gretel Never Made it Home to Papa

So this year, so far, has been quite a roller coaster ride for me career wise. I chose for my Senior Thesis to reillustrate Hansel and Gretel. I wanted to capture the eeriness and horror the story of the story with oils. I had planned on doing 2  whole paintings and 3 spot illustrations by the end of this semester and by the time the show rolled around in May I'd have 5 full paintings done and 6 spots, which in my mind, was enough to capture the gist of the story. BUT OOOOOOOH I was so wrong. Many things caught me off guard this semester... I just was not on top of my game. I did end of getting two full paintings done and 3 spots, but they just were not up to my standards.
