The Castle in the Clouds
I really like how these pieces came out, as I do a few others I'll post in the next couple days after I have a moment or two to touch them up. I was looking for another fantasy-inspired scene and love what I got in the first one. It's a castle, in the clouds in the distance. But what I love about these two pieces when taken together is how that these two paintings are identical, yet it's hard to tell. In fact I love how a bit of alteration to color scheme and deepness of color can in fact completely alter a scene. In this case the second seems much closer than the first which appears at distance. Anyhow, thought I'd share some of my thoughts on these, in addition to the paintings themselves.
