Oil on board canvas
Size 46 x 38 cm / 18.1 x 15 inches

Yeah, my second pony oil painting, sold in the Crystal Fair along with the first one.

The idea has been with me forever, and it has been just a matter of time until I actually did it, originally it was supposed to be digital, but I decided to try and do it some justice with oils.

This already had so much better technique going than my last one. The lossy photo quality here doesn't really do enough justice to the brilliance of linseed oil, which I used to make the whole background sky and fog glaze behind the mostly matte environment. Almost entirely wet on wet technique, so much smoother than my first one, Home Sweet Home, which was mostly wet on dry.

I reeeeally should dabble with oils a lot more...

Horizon rising up to meet the purple dawn
Dust demon screaming, bring an eagle to lead me on
For in my heart I carry such a heavy load
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road

I'm hungry, weary, but I cannot lay me down
The rain comes, dreary, but there's no shelter I have found
It will be a long time till I find my abode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road

Moon rising, disguising lonely streets in gay displays
The stars fade, the night shade falls and makes the world afraid
It waits in silence for the sky to explode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road
Walking Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road ...

I walk a lonely road, the only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes, but it's home to me and I walk alone
-Green Day, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"

Beautiful imagery :)

Poor Trixie. :( I hope she'll come back again soon. :( I mean she's learned her lesson. :(

Mitenköhän pitkään siinä menee, että hymy ei nouse naamalle aina kun tohon seinälle katseensa kääntää?

Tää on vieläkin hienoin yksi asia, mikä tästä fandomista mukaan on vuosien varrella tarttunu. :)

Absolutely stunning. The background just catches your eye and makes you feel like you are actually there. Theres a reason you are my go-to landscape artist, and this just hammers that point home

Very beautiful!  Well done!  :+fav:

Oh, how many times I have walked the lonely path.  I'm surprised I've never passed Trixie.

What happens between the episodes... the thought had never even crossed my mind. But wow this just looks amazing... never thought MLP art could look so epic and awe-inspiring.
