Water Maze by Tanize Water Maze by Tanize
MAZE, not MACE, mind you. xDD

Oh, grief. Where to start...
[Bullet form]

:bulletblue: This has actually been done for about a week, but I didn't want to post it because it was for my Mam's birthday [Aug 29], and since she roams my gallery from time to time I didn't want her to see it beforehand.

:bulletgreen: When I tried to print this out to frame yesterday I realized too late that the blue colour patron was empty; so everything that was blue in the picture came out red. xDD;
[Luckily we had an extra set of colour patrons]

:bulletred: The reason I decided to paint this for my Mam was because... Well. I saw it in a dream once and thought it was so pretty that I wanted to try and re-create it. . _____.
Unfortunately it turned out I didn't have the skills to do it justice. xDD;

:bulletpurple: I have no clue where the water is coming from or where it's headed. I only saw this part of the maze [it that's what it was...] in the dream.

:bulletblue: I'll go and edit the watermark in a minute. It was sloppily slapped on there before... In pink. . _________.;
The reason it's there at all is because it was a gift.

Changed the watermark to something more acceptable and less... Pink. x33;

[/Bullet form]

... In conclusion:

I don't like how this turned out.
At all.

The only thing I like about it, in retrospect, is the colour and the water. Induvidually, though. xDD;

Maybe one day I'll be albe to try this again and succeed. :)
Until that day, this will serve as a reminder that I fail lightning and reflection and... Um... I can ALMOST pull off one-point perspectives? xDD;;

Sorry. Long description.
Thanks for looking! Take! :)

I dream in black and white; so I had to BS the colours. xDD;

Oh shit. Freaky dream. xDD;;
I'm no dream reader, but I'd guess a dream like that would either mean that you feel trapped, or that it's feking cold where you live. x:

And thanks! : D

I think it's very pretty. You do really nice backgrounds, and it even has that sense of 3d to it.
About your dreams, that's interesting, I wonder why you dream in black and white. I dream in color, and I was like WHHA? when someone told me that most people actually dream in black and white.
Oh yea, and I love your bright colors as well, it gives that sort of, its a warm sunny day feeling. If that makes sense ^^;

It must be nice dreaming in colour... I never was a big fan of old movies, haha.
Then again, having a restricted palette does leave alot of options open. :D

And thanks alot. I struggle with perspective and backgrounds [no doi], so your comment was very warming. :hug:
And I'm glad you get a sunny day feeling, that's what I was going for. :)
