Midsummer Knights Dream

This started out as something else, but my art rarely goes where I want it to – which is not a bad thing; it’s part of the adventure.  I originally was going for a take on Munch’s ‘The Scream’, but somewhere along the way blended the surrealistic aspects of his work and more traditional painting – probably because I wanted to practice shading.  As a fantasy piece, the story is of a knight, a Paladin or otherwise, who takes a moment to rest.  The scene captures that moment that the borders between the dream-lands and the world we live in blur; where sleep takes over our thoughts.  In the background, are they the swirling mists of her dream or a sinister portent of battle to come?
