No Shoes From This Point Onwards by angrymikko No Shoes From This Point Onwards by angrymikko
I was asked to send a piece to my former teacher's art exhibition. And I did this as 2 meters tall print on canvas and sent it to the gallery. 
I was thinking about what connect the artists and I thought about the unique skill we have to visualize the places in our minds for other people. 

original size is 11779x16657px at 400dpi
The reason why I did it in this scale is because I wanted the brushwork detail to show in the wall-size print. A lot of the surfaces are painted intentionally in layers with different levels of pressure so you get this sort of raster effect of color when you view it from far away. 
I spent a lot of time just deleting all descriptive detail that the viewer could see without my "help".

Sometimes I feel like just suggesting a shape gives the piece more clarity in the viewer's mind than me taking away that connection by filling in too much definition. 

I hope summer has been good for you all. My vacation has yet to start but it's so close now! =)

Upea työ - jälki on hienoa, kun se ei ole liian kliinistä. Hienosti toimiva vähän harvinaisempi puna-vihreä kombo sen niin usein nähdyn ja trendikkään (mutta toimivan) sini-oranssin sijasta.

This is gorgeous. It makes me think of an old school fantasy game setting. And by old, i'm talking when computers still used Dos programming. One of my favorite games to play at a friend's hose, was called The Dig. It had imagery that this piece made me think of.

Thank you for the comment!

It makes me so happy to hear you say that. The games of that era are a huge source of inspiration for me. I think I'm still living the old days when games had these epic fantasy worlds =)
You don't see that kind of imagination these days that much. However I'm lucky that I can still paint images like these and maybe bring back a little glimmer of light from those days. At least to myself.

Oh most definitely. In fact, you can see the entirety of The Dig, on youtube, in numbered parts. 

I don't remember how I came across your gallery, but i'm definitely gonna be looking back through it at your fantasy landscapes.
