The Song of Your Sadness by alicexz The Song of Your Sadness by alicexz

EDIT 03/07/13: Now also available in the official BBC Shop!


EDIT 01/26/13: Good news for those who have been asking about open-edition "The Roar of Our Stars"/"The Song of Your Sadness" prints! The two pieces have been licensed by the BBC and are now both available as official Doctor Who art prints!! Purchases can be made from Big Chief Studios Limited.


“Oh Amy, I hear the song of your sadness.”
“I’m not sad.”
“Then why are you crying?”
A painting I spent many, many hours Livestreaming, this is my tribute to the magnificent Amy Pond, who inspired Vincent van Gogh in her adventures with the Doctor. I hope if Amy stayed with Vincent longer he might've painted something like this - something that showed her inner sadness, something he could empathize with. This work is part of my official series of Doctor Who poster-paintings based on the newer seasons.

Little disclaimer! I researched van Gogh paintings like Starry Night and his Sunflowers series for this work, but I want to reiterate that I'm not claiming to be an Impressionist nor am I saying I am anywhere near as skilled as the great painter himself... this piece is a conceptual work, done with my own artistic style and choices with some influence that's meant to recall van Gogh's style. Reference from the episode "Vincent and the Doctor."

Please reblog instead of reposting on Tumblr! Thank you so much for your support and comments!
