Oz Prequel Painting by ColbyBluth Oz Prequel Painting by ColbyBluth
This painting is from a drawing I did for a proposed Wizard of Oz prequel [link] . My main objective was to illustrate the drawing in a style similar to Arthur Rackham. It was a good learning experiment.

Inked with crow quill and brush, colored with watercolor. On stretched 2-ply Bristol paper, plate finish reverse side.

I love that story!! :D I recently went to a representation on a stage in my school. But it was changed to teach some about chemistry... I didn't like it ¬¬
I love your paintings (: I wanna learn a little more about watercolors
