A few days ago I had an idea for a new painting. This is not it. Or: This is not what I had in mind when I started painting. I don't think it's my usual style either. This is more or less the result of me failing and then simply trying out different things and experimenting with new techniques. I do like it though.
Done with Photoshop Elements and ArtRage.
It may not be your usual subject (I mostly associate you with landscapes), but I can see elements of your style in this. The colors are interesting without being garish, and the magical elements are fantastical without being jarring. I like the contrast between the flow of her hair and the ribbon, and the spikier twig-like pattern in the background. The palette is a little more muted than some of your landscapes, but it really works for this. I like it a lot, and whatever this was meant to be when you started, I think this ended up in a very good place indeed.
Thanks for the comment! I never really considered myself a landscape painter. I know landscapes are a part of what I do, but I thought I had enough characters and weird objects to set me apart from more traditional landscape painters.
