'Monocromatic-Blue' by GoaliGrlTilDeath 'Monocromatic-Blue' by GoaliGrlTilDeath
A painting completed in my FA 102 class... elementary, I know, but I loved how it turned out, especially for someone who has zero tallent in wet media. This assignment was a fun one, though: Take a photograph or other picture from a magazine, newspaper, internet, etc, and then 'complete' the picture outside the bounds of that taken picture. The taken picture couldn't be more than 1/8th of the finished peice. You can tell fairly easily in this scan where the bounds of my chosen picture are, but its almost impossible to find when you're looking at the peice itself.

I hope you won't be offended when I say this reminds me very much of Bob Ross. I love Bob and his TV show and watch it religiously, so from me it is a compliment :)

I especially like how you've hinted at the mist around the base of the mountain.

zero talent to paint in wet media? :| i think this looks stunning, i love the just white and blues in it too, makes it look clean and fresh, and untouched by mankind in a way:)

lol Thank you very much, for the comment and the +fav.

Also, I actually didn't paint the horses-- they're a printout from a photograph. That's the whatever-% that I chose to build a painting around for the assignment. I'm not skilled enough with a paintbrush to pull the horses off :D

Seriously, this is one of the most awesome paintings I've ever seen... I can't express how perfect and beautiful it all is but... it's something I'd want to have on my wall.

Very nice. The blue is rather calming and contrasts well with the urgency of the horses. :thumbsup:
