Beautiful use of tone and composition. The way the grainy surface of the painting works with the dark, faded olive colour is very beautiful. The forms within the piece are clear and distinct, and a clear sense of a horizon line is seen, particularly when looked at from far away. Combined with the water and sky, what gets across is quite genius; the vague colour and feel of the image works with the landscape and strange depiction of a human face and bird to create an undeniably ghostly feel to the work. It is quite ominous. Awesome work!
