Distant Shore by angrymikko Distant Shore by angrymikko
I wanted to paint a place where I can sink my toes into hot sand and listen to the waves.

I went back and forth with many of the details here because I wanted the image to have this certain feeling that's hard to put into words. Like realistic to a certain point but leading the mind into the fantasy of escape? I hope the image does the job of explaining this better than I can.

Painted in massive scale because I knew I'd print this. I need these windows to other worlds to escape to every now and then when real life is a bit too much if you know what I mean =)

Thanks for looking/reading!

Oh, this is beautiful! As someone's who's attempting to master seascapes, this is inspiring, a very gorgeous use of colors, I almost thought it was a photo in the thumbnail, I wish I could go lie on this shore and just watch those clouds. It does indeed do a wonderful job of explaining that feeling of longing for a quiet spot like this, well done.

I love this! I want to dive into that painting and relax my day away :3 I think I know where your going with this, you basically want to paint a place that is too beautiful/wonderful to be true such as places that may be described in our favorite books. Great job with this :) I love the different tones and tints of blue and green.

The clouds are so amazing! The white part looks like a photograph, very realistic and still there's this bit of fantasy.
So: Yes! You perfectly created what was in your mind :)

Nice thoughts on the piece: I understand that too. It's nice to create little worlds where we can just travel to and escape to.

This one definitely has an immersive feel, although at some points I wonder how pleasant it is. Still, it's really good and I like how you did the water a lot.

This makes me think of the primordial world, the beginning of time. It totally looks like a fantasy escape place. The way you lit up the clouds is genius!

You just keep producing amazing art! This picture really appeals to me.

I find so much solace in lonely landscapes, so much beauty in bleakness... this picture is so calm, peaceful, and mournful but in a way that I can't describe properly. This picture isn't about happy and sad for me; it's about being reminded that the world is so much bigger than I am, being forced to realise a true sense of perspective but in a reassuringly honest way. It's truly wonderful. I could sit on that beach for eternity.

Thanks you :)

Hope you don't mind, but I am setting up a tent, just to the right of that jutting rock on the right :D

Excellent, this popped right out from me in the thumbnails and is even more awesome full-size.
