Notes:
This painting was inspired by a scene in the movie The Omen (original version), where Gregory Peck goes to a cemetery to uncover his son's past. I really love this scene because of the fantastic set they built and the mood they achieved. There is just something about 70s/80s horror movies, like The Fog and The Exorcist for example, that got lost in today's horror flicks. It's probably because they remind me of my youth when I watched them on TV late at night together with my brother, and those moments hold a dear place in my heart. Pretty corny, I know, but that is how I feel. Anyway?

Another aspect of this painting, which came to me later on in the painting process, is that I have been probably influenced by the beautiful environments portrayed in the game The Monkey Island (both I and II). It's probably because of the colours and the theatrical composition of the elements. So here goes another homage.

Regarding the title, I wanted it to be quite suggestive of what was going on in this scene, without revealing everything and leaving some room for the viewer's imagination. It has a II because I have another painting in my portfolio with the same title in a similar macabre context.

The painting was done entirely in Photoshop and took me about 12-14 hours to complete. I hope you like it and perhaps some of you will relate to it the way I do.

PS On some monitors the image may look too dark, unfortunately.
