Landscape Experiment 30July12 by Artwyrd Landscape Experiment 30July12 by Artwyrd
I have spent the day working on this. I have used Rotring pens, watercolour paints and metallic watercolours on watercolour paper to create this imaginary landscape.

I thought I'd use colours that represent the different seasons, as well as autumnal and spring/summer trees. Spirals and curls are a feature of my artworks, as well as the highly detailed pen lines/textures.

I find it easy to do this kind of work, yet if I was to try to express a real landscape, I would end up bogged down in trying to make it real, to get it perfect, to use realistic colours ...

I've had a ponder about such things in my journal today...but I've enjoyed working on this and am pleased, mostly, with it. It's certainly something to continue experimenting with.

Oh, it's 4" x 6" in size, if you were wondering!

Wow, I'm just a loss of words for this style of work. Incredible, as usual, and definitely full of details so lots to discover about this. Excellent work. I can totally relate to that perfectionistic notion of realism art because it does that to me as well--that's why I have a greater appreciation for this type of art. So much more expressive.
