september dusk by GreenSprite september dusk by GreenSprite
I was here last week. Grandma has some quinces up this hill and we went to get the fruit. Since I don't have a camera, I tried to re-create the place from memory.

It's beautiful. Very joyful and light :) You gave "bubble" view for the flowers in meadow - nice.

It's because they are "bubble" flowers :) You know, fluffy dandelions. Thank you again!

I love those sort of fairy lights on the ground, and overall this has a lovely, soft, dreamlike quality to it. Very eye-catching.

Thank you! It was really mesmerizing in real life. The fairy lights are in fact dandelions, you know when they're all white and poofy and with the sunlight shining behind them :)

Nooo now I don't associate this with happy things anymore :(
My eyesight's been getting worse, too. I have to get used to wearing glasses all the time and I'm just like AUGH DO NOT WANT. It just doesn't feel "me" at all. (and yes, I'm this whiny whenever someone brings up glasses. Horrible, I know.)

When I found out I needed glasses, I would read every road sign and billboard aloud as my parents were driving me to school and around, so as to prove my vision was perfectly fine. At first I had dreams about my eyesight being healed and not having to wear those hateful lenses, but now, 14 years or so later, I actually can't see myself without them. They've become part of my self-identity.

...Then again, I was a kid when I got them. DX Try contact lenses, maybe?

Yeah, I've heard people say that glasses are part of their identity, but I just can't see that happen with me (and frankly, I don't want it. I prefer hating my glasses :lol:) Just curious, if you could somehow fix your eyes now with no side effects, would you do it? And if yes, would you wear non-prescription glasses?

The eye doctor said I couldn't wear contact lenses for more than 8 hours at a time. I don't know if she's just distrustful towards contacts, or there is something particular about my eyes that prevents it. As far as I read on my own, there are lenses that can be worn for much longer than that. (For some reason, most doctors can't be bothered to really talk to their patients in detail around here. I liked biology and I read medical articles of varying difficulty even now, so it's not like the lingo confuses me. Doctors, please tell me what's wrong with me, that helps as much as the prescription you're giving.)

She also said that eye surgery wouldn't help much so it wouldn't be worth it either (not that I could afford it anyway). So now I have this horrible feeling of "I'm stuck with glasses forever" and stubbornly only wear them at home. Thankfully, I can function without them too, but it's weird to make a noticeable effort to just look at things.

I'm being very immature about this, I know. I wish I were one of those people who look good in glasses.

I dunno, I bet it's harder for an adult to adjust to glasses than a kid. I sympathize.

Also, that really sucks about the contacts. Your doctor needs to be more helpful.

Thanks :D I was actually in the countryside again this week, and I saw a very similar scenery so I got to compare. Conclusion: it would've been probably better if it weren't so abstract. Some actual details on the grasses would've been nice.

Maybe, but I guess it's down to whether or not you wanted to portray how it felt to be there, or what it actually looked like. The abstract effect makes it more atmospheric and almost sensory - all based on memory images, rather than a true representation ...

OK, that all sounds a bit too pretentious. Ignore me, I'm off to bed! ;)

E interesanta asta, ar trebui sa mai faci. Eu as fi facut cerul si mai neclar in partea de sus, ca un gradient, dar cred ca e doar o chestie de preferinte.

Pai ii un gradient foarte slab, numai ca partea de sus e mai inchisa o_O Nu-mi place ceru in mod special, asa ca ma intereseaza idei de schimbare :D

Vad ca e gradient, dar are urme de brush. Poate m-am exprimat gresit, vroiam sa zic mai neted. De cand n-am mai iesit din casa am inceput sa uit limba romana :roll:

aaa. Da, mie nu-mi plac gradienturile complet netede, si am incercat sa-l stric putin. (Mai ales in picturi de astea cu potential mare de a deraia catre CheeseLand).

Again, i like the layered, textures in there and the little glowing bits, like dust-motes in the light.
Its quite abstracty and i like the idea of trying to recreate it from memory. It makes me think i am too much of a slave to my photos :)
you found your spark then... :D

Thank you! I was really going for this abstracty look and it turned out very close to what I hoped for. I'm pleased with it, so I suppose I found my spark indeed :)
