Road to Nowhere by gifdot Road to Nowhere by gifdot
Just a little something to get back into painting after what feels like a rather long break. I was pretty unhappy with it while I was painting. The ink drawing was really nice but then something felt like it went wrong about half way through colouring. Now that it's scanned, it looks ok to me though. Obviously it has its flaws but it's not without its charms either. ^_^

This was also my last sheet of watercolour paper. I've ordered some more but in the meantime I might do a bit of digital for a change.

Ink and Watercolour.

I love cats too (obviously XD)

I'm never quite sure how I feel about the colour blue. I definitely like it but it's not as exciting to me as some other colours. I find myself using (and wearing) it an awful lot though. It's kind of my colour comfort zone. :D

Thanks, it took a lot of paint to get that rich colour. I ended up having to buy more blue. ;)

This is so cool! I love how everything is blue, expect for that little touch of orange on the cat's eyes. :)

I love the blues - such a calming atmosphere. And the balance in the curving trees and the placement of the sun (or moon?) really adds to that calm feeling. Nice work :3

Thanks! I'm rather surprised that this painting seems to be so well liked as I really didn't feel great about it while I was painting. In the initial drawing it was supposed to be a moon but now I'm not sure if it's a day or a night scene. :)

Also, your art is amazing and I've been admiring it for quite some time now. I'm very happy that you like a painting of mine!
