Inspired, yet again, by Blinck's Eversong Wood painting. [link]
It's a wonder how just one image could enliven different other ideas set in similar scenario. I've been watching his speedpainting videos on Youtube for the past few months and I really like his technique in painting landscape. It's quick, simple and detailed at the same time. Frankly, I don't know many Old Masters and their paintings, so I thought another way to continue teach myself is to watch speedpainting videos done by some of the existing professional; following thier video to pick up some of methods.

Without him, this image would never be made possible. So, a big thanks to him for making such beautiful landscape.
Take a few moments off and visit his dA page. You won't be disappointed.

Yep, another practice of colour and lighting as usual.

Have some Robert Frost. Anyways, absolutely beautiful work as always. I love the soft texture of those trees and the autumn colours as well :)
