"She has come for me,
Moonlight is her face
Ravens, her cloak
Through the cold mist
On the now silent battlefield.
I had this idea and sketched out a tiny scribbley thumbnail about a year ago. I started collecting reference images and refined the sketch. I would work on it when I got a chance but it wouldn't look right. So I would leave it. I would restart again with the thumbnail. More reference. Restarting it again. And again. And again.
And then something clicked and I restarted and finished the painting in about a week. What clicked? Her wings couldn't be majestically outspread, to be descending they would be pulled back and smaller. And the composition fell into place.
