"Dune Sea"
[Acrylics & colored pencils on MDF board; 60 x 42 cm]

I painted this one for my exhibition "KinoKino", in addition to a collection of Star Wars character sketches. A last minute addition, finished the night before the gallery opening. Right on time, I even got a few hours of sleep before hanging the pictures on the walls, having a quick meal and enjoying a great opening night. ;-)
Poor Threepio, lost in the desert. Of course it's Artoo's fault! As always!

Its always the last minute bits that are enjoyed the most, aren't they?

There's a rough and rugged tone to it, but 3PO looks so regal!! With ANH 3PO, how could you go wrong?

Great work!

Thanks a lot, Mike! Yeah, sometimes I wonder if perhaps I should wait with every new picture til the deadline is overdue...uhm, maybe not. ;)
To me, ANH as a whole to this day is something special. The look and feel, the music and cinematography make this one stand out. Of course having seen it at age 9 in the theater helps a lot, but I still feel very much "at home" on ANH's Tatooine.

Thank you very much for the fave and for the kind words, Mark! :-)
I'm so glad I painted him for my exhibition - my common sense kept telling me "you're never going to make it on time". I did eventually and I, too, love the finished piece.
