This image was originally intended to represent a contrast/partnership between good and evil, light and dark, yin and yang, etc. However, in the colored version, the girl who was supposed to represent evil (the one without wings, obviously) looks a little too happy and bright. It really looks more like the angel is a guardian, giving protection and guidance. Watercolor, my new favorite medium, and pearlescent acrylic ink on some of the highlights, which didn't show up in the scan. I tried using salt in the background to achieve that awesome effect the way Amy Brown always does, but it didn't work out for me for some reason.
