Hi everyone!
Finally a pretty much completed painting !
Took me around 15 hours I would say, and I'm pretty proud of it.
Wanted to paint the ruins of some ancient civilization, in a place that looked forgotten for a long time.

I decided to upload this one in a higher resolution so that you can catch some of the details, so please go full view !

I hope it is not too bright or too dark, since sometimes my monitor plays some tricks on me hehe.

I hope you like it!

I love how diminutive the explorer appears to be in comparison to the ruins. It makes the ancient city look all the more imposing.

So many wonders destroyed, never to be re-built.

So much knowledge forgotten, never to be re-learned.

So much glory eclipsed, never to be re-claimed.

So far we had fallen, never to rise again.
