Just wow!! Always when i watch Your works, i just have no words to describe how beautiful Your works are!
You use such different tones of colors and You are not afraid of doing a mistake. That is very difficult, i think.
On one hand, this work is full of emotions, like all colors want to jump from this work but they are closely connected to each other. On the other hand it is full of phylosophy and harmony.
Just fantastic!!! :heart: :sun:

You've got a fantastic sense of depth into this one, and the sky is really unusual. I like. :meow:

I really like the texture this sort of cross hatch technique creates, but I love the colours of your past works. The blue and purple work particularly well here. I don't think you have to have an ultra saturated colour scheme as your past pieces, but maybe a wider variation of colours? I'm not sure. This is an interesting development of your style; I'll keep watching. Great job, by the way :]

Oh, and good luck with the psychedelic while still realistic type thing. I'm sure you'll make it work out.

the technique you used to paint the sky is interesting.

I like it. More realistic even though more diffuse. Looks similar to artistwilder's stuff. Check out what she's doing: [link]

Thanks :) I know Linda's stuff very well. We actually used to live in the same city and met once at a show. I'm definitely inspired by her work, but want to make sure I maintain my own unique style. The mountains are quite close to where we live (she lives a couple hours south now), so it's natural to be inspired by the local scenery. I guess the thing I want to emphasize with my new landscapes is the almost unnatural colour; I want it to look kind of psychedelic, while maintaining the realism.

Wow. It is a small world indeed! I like the new stuff and would like to see where you take it. You've really been branching out lately!

Thanks. The funny thing is that this one even showed more restraint with the colours than I wanted to. I want to use colour schemes that you would never expect to see in landscapes. I guess the motivation is that I want to approach my landscapes in the same way that I approach my figurative stuff. With most of my figurative pieces, I don't really stick to conventional colours and skin tones. Although I really like my old landscapes, I want to be able to put a figurative piece next to a landscape and have people say, "yeah, it was definitely the same artist who painted those". That's another thing I really admire about Linda's work... whether she's painting landscapes, figuratives or animals, you can really tell that they are all hers. My next landscape is going to be even crazier... I promise! ;)
