~o~ Tranquility ~o~

This is a remake of one of the first digital paintings I ever did. I painted the original back in 2008. This is now three times the original size so I can finally make decent prints. I tried to give the forest a more detailed, but also softer look.

The song "running to the light" by RUNRIG which I listened to while painting is still one of my favourite songs today.

"[...]Those who stride too far too soon
Will not hold pace
Only the calm
Will win the race
Through the forest, the sea of mountain pine
Surrender everything

Only those who
Greatness see in little things
Worthy are the simple
They're happy in their ways
Self will wither out of sight
Running to the light [...]"

Here's the old version if you feel like comparing:…

Will I sound silly if I say that the most recent is actually more evocative of tranquillity? I think it's because of the lesser emphasis on the vertical, it's the only thing that comes to mind. Great work!

I wasn't good at blending colors when I painted the old version. The contrasts were too strong. The colors here are a lot softer and I hope that adds to the more tranquil feeling :)

This is a beautiful illustration and so is the idea behind it.

I rarely plan ahead. I just paint whatever I feel like painting.
