One More Day by angrymikko One More Day by angrymikko
If any divine force is reading this I have a wish:

If at all possible I want to be Albert Bierstadt in my next life. If it's doable then I'll promise to be a good boy and eat my vegetables and help old ladies cross the streets in this life.

I suppose godly forces must have more important matters to attend to than follow my deviantart gallery.

This is my first "serious" attempt at painting with gouache. The word serious meaning that I had no plan whatsoever what I wanted to paint and just splashed around with paint for good 40 minutes before some shapes started appearing on the A4 I was using.

Scanned in 1200dpi for high extra quality prints. I want to see this on my workspace wall.

Looks like a place I want to go to. I've been craving water, I wish I could go swimming but it's raining here Q.Q

My Problem: Your paintings look too real. Sometimes i forget I'm looking at a screen, rather a photo of a place some lucky person got to visit. Photo, meaning that place is real, I just never can go there. XD

Good work. I've noticed your style is changing slightly too :)

The scary thing is, is that I really can't see any difference between your digital pieces and this. My traditional painting skills are incredibly sad compared to what I can do with the help of Photoshop...

I should practise more.

Amazing work! Gouache is such a hard media, this looks like a pro's work!

Albert Bierdstadt is my favorite artist ever, too... his work is just unparalleled <3
