This is my interpretation of the Wicked Witch of the West as she is described in Gregory Maguire's novel, WICKED. And believe me, the original painting is much bigger and looks much better than this. My scanner's an IDIOT!
For those of you who've read the book, you may recognise the Grimmerie and the Miracle Elixir she's carrying. Also, the pattern on her scarf features a row of purple goat heads -- a reference to Dr. Dillamond, her teacher at Shiz University.
To those of you who love Elphaba and don't think I've done this character justice, I apologise. Please note that it's the first painting I've ever finished and I promise to improve a lot over the next few months. Maybe I'll please you next time!
