Jane Eyre by Pifalo Jane Eyre by Pifalo
I painted this as a book cover assignment to myself. I chose this book because it is a gothic love story with lots of mood. I was trying to see if I could create the mood through lighting and the use of color. Anyway, here it is.

20"x26" oil on illustration board

i like the use of wind in this, it gives it a nice movement

Thanks Dyscorde, because it takes place on the English Moors, I thought the wind would give it mood. Because she is just standing there, like you said, it gives it some movement. Thanks again for the comment.

Ps. Post some more photos :)

This is good, but the rest of your gallery is so much better! One of the very rare times I looked at the gallery of someone who got a DD and was actually blown away by how much better the art that DIDN'T get the DD was!...And this comment is not meant to be insulting in any way. I think your work deserves to be represented as a DD by something more fitting. :) Hope everyone who bothered to look through the comments checks out this artist's gallery, too!

Oh good, I'm really glad you didn't get upset, thinking I was trying to insult or make a backhanded compliment. People get so sensitive, and sometimes like to deliberately read the wrong thing into comments here, that it's refreshing not to be misinterpreted for a change! :) Yeah, I really like your gallery, and hope folks will take a look further!

I really like Jane Austen's stories too. That time period was really rough on women, and these ones wrote about it while still being entertaining.

Jane Eyre was written by Charlotte Brontë and published in 1847. My favourite novel of all time... *swoons* :)

umm..sorry if this offends (since it is your fav and all), but you must be either a romantic or you're just really deprived of good books, although claassics are nice at times...

I am extremely well read. Jane Eyre has a bit of everything, if you can read between the lines. Read it when I was 7 the first time.
