The Banshee by HollyTheTerrible The Banshee by HollyTheTerrible
This is my version of a banshee. I have painted her while she took a wee break from wailing.

Painting Details:
This is an original acrylic painting on a canvas textured art panel (like gesso art board). The painting measures at 8" x 10".

Painting was started/completed in 2011.

I love it! This is my favorite! It love the color, the creepy stare in her eye. When you hear the old stories this is exactly what you envision. And the use of color is, as alway amazing! The eerie greens and blues, mixed with the occasional warm tone used it such a way to create a feeling of unease. I love it!

Thank you so much! I always imagined from hearing the old stories a banshee with a wide mouth and strange bloodshot eyes when I was a kid. It really freaked me out and stayed with me.

So it was a lot of fun to remember how I had envisioned them when I was younger while working on this painting.

She looks rather beautiful, in an eerie soirt of way. I LOVE the folds on her dress! :)

Thank you! I'm glad I was able to make her a bit frightening without compromising her loveliness completely! :)

Wow! She is super creepy. I love the red at the tips of her fingers, maybe she just got down killing someone?
