Edward Scissorhands 20th Anniversary

This piece is for Sebastian Meynard’s awesome Scissorhands20th tribute blog/show.  The scan is a bit contrasty and the background looks more patchy than the painting does in real life.  I like Tim Burton most in monochrome because it’s in monochrome that he best shows off his German Expressionist influences.  So here’s my contribution.

And  here are some grainy pics I shot while I was painting it.  I tried to make it look like the pictures were taken from a lo-res spy camera as it zoomed past on a train.  I think you’ll agree that I succeeded admirably.
