The Secret Pool

This painting took me quite a while. Somehow it is older but also newer than some recent paintings I've uploaded. I did the initial drawing almost a year ago, and worked on it on occasion. I got stuck often, especially with the green tones, and I almost wouldn't have finished it. But I felt I needed to push through, and iam glad I did it. I learned a lot about these green-tones and values and many things I would do different in the future. With that painting going for so long I feel it got lots of memories attached to it which I've had in the time it was worked on. I wanted to convey a mysterious mood of the likes of symbolist paintings.

Thank you guys a lot for the DD! Its my first one, and I couldn't be happier, that my art resonates with that many people! :)

I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think about it in the comments. :)

Do you as well enjoy populating your backgrounds with "accumulated" detail? Like the toadstools in this?

Yea, sometimes :)

However long it took, the end result is simply beautiful 😊

Thank you! Good things take time, but also nerves sometimes. ;)

Das strahlt so viel Ruhe aus. Gerade der weiße Drache in all dem Grün gefällt mir sehr gut!

Vielen Dank! Es sollte einen Moment der Reflektion und des Innehaltens zeigen. Freut mich, dass es gut rüberkommt. :)
