Entry for :iconalepainkiller:'s Freedom contest

I love finishing assignments. I'm free to just... sit and paint, and I know I've got time to wait to see what I come up with, or take risks, or spend hours just making doodles or playing with colour... and sometimes something catches alight and flies...

For the more... picture-related freedom meaning.
Well, a mix of things...
I was listening to Sun Tzu's Art of War - which is obviously full of implications about fighting for and taking one's self'/cpeaople/country's freedom; discipline or the lack of; freedom to act; denying to other side that freedom...

That comes through more in the righthand side - the sun and fire sister. She's fierce and fights, alone, and protects other's freedoms.
The green side is a secretive side, a hidden forest-girl who hides and preserves and watches. She doesn't fight, she is safe, but only because of her fiery sister.

But fire and forests don't mix - however connected they are, the tough of fire shrivels the leaves... but without the fuel, the fire dies.



Three to Five hours.

Also, yeah, been feeling a bit... displeased with my recent submissions. Doodles and practicing is all very well, but I need some proper paintings! :shakefish: A glance over my recent submissions is just plain embarrassing!
